What is a Sacrament?

A sacrament is an action in which we, the faithful community, gather to celebrate our lived experience and call to mind our common story. This action is a symbol of God’s care for us in Christ. Enacting the symbol brings us closer to one another in the Church and to the Lord who is there for us.
  • The sacraments, therefore, are the signs which express our faith in the reality hidden underneath them.
  • They are the signs through which we worship and encounter God intimately.
  • They are the signs of the unity of the Church because they express what the whole Church believes, not just our private devotions.
  • They are the signs of Christ being present in his Body, the Church.
  • They provide opportunities for celebrating the presence of God in the significant times of our lives and in the life of the Church.

It is Christ who is encountered in the seven sacraments.
It is Christ who acts in the sacraments.
It is Christ’s worship of the Father that is expressed in the sacraments.


Celebrating the sacraments is at the core of our parish life. Our big moments in life are marked in a solemn way from womb to tomb.

On this page, we will provide all the details for the celebration of the sacraments and there is a link to more information on each sacrament.


To make arrangements for a baptism in our parish call into the Parish Office.

A member of the Baptismal Team will arrange a visit with your family to help prepare for the ceremony.

The names of those welcomed recently into our Christian Community through baptism are listed on the Welcome page of our website.

Holy Orders

The ongoing life of the church depends on vocations to the priesthood. Our diocese has a director of vocations and we’d be delighted to make an introduction for any interested candidates. Talk to any of the priests to get more information. The Diocesan website may also have useful information about Vocations in our diocese.
