BAPTISM of INFANTS
Baptism is the sacrament in which infants are welcomed into God’s Family. By having your child baptised you are making a commitment to bring them up as Catholics and become part of our worshipping community. Application forms can be obtained from Fr William Massie.
RECONCILIATION and FIRST COMMUNION
Preparation for the sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Communion begin in the Autumn, leading to First Confession and First Communion in Spring and Summer. Notice for applications will be given during the last few Sundays of the summer term.
Any of our younger committed parishioners, in year 8 or above, who wish to be confirmed by Bishop Terence Patrick Drainey, will be invited to a course in preparation for this sacrament. Bishop Terence Patrick visits Hull for confirmations every second year. Application forms can be obtained from Fr William Massie.
The preparation for marriage takes approximately six months, during which the couple meet with the priest on four occasions, as well as attending a Marriage Care course. So, before making any practical arrangements for your wedding, it is wise to meet up with the parish priest to discuss in detail all that will be required. Please contact Fr William Massie.
ANOINTING of the SICK
This Sacrament of Anointing is given to those who are sick; it is a sacrament of forgiveness and healing. If you, or anyone you know, would like to receive this sacrament please inform Fr William Massie.
In the event of someone’s death please inform Fr Wiam Massie so that the parish can meet up with the family, offering prayer, support and advice.
At different times in your life you may be required to present a new copy of the record of your reception of a sacrament of the Church, whether it be baptism, confirmation or marriage. If you need such a certificate for yourself or your child please contact Fr William Massie.
GOING INTO HOSPITAL
If you, or a member of your family, is going into hospital and would like to be visited by the chaplain, please make sure that you inform Fr William Massie so that the relevant hospital chaplain can be alerted.
