First Holy Communion

The First Communion of a baptized child is normally celebrated at the age of seven or eight, and it is preceded by their first confession (the sacrament of Reconciliation).  Catechism classes are held on Tuesday afternoons for those who do not receive catechism classes at school. Please contact the parish office for more info. 

Confirmation

Christian rite in which one’s acceptance into the church is said to be confirmed (or strengthened and established in faith). In the Roman Catholic Church, it is considered a sacrament. Confirmation is frequently preceded by catechism instruction which are held on Monday evenings. Please contact the parish office for more info.

RCIA

The RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) is a process that allows non-baptized men and women to become members of the Catholic Church. It is divided into numerous stages, each defined by study, prayer, and Mass ceremonies. Catechumens are those who participate in the RCIA. Classes are held on Tuesday evenings. Contact the parish office for more.

Anointing of the Sick

The Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick is a Catholic Church sacrament that commemorates our confidence in Christ’s healing touch in our lives. We pray for the sick person’s physical, mental, and spiritual healing in the Sacrament. The sacrament of reconciliation and healing is offered during the anointing. Please contact the parish office to book.

Confession

Confession is a sacrament provided by Jesus Christ in his mercy and love to pardon sinners for their transgressions against God and their sisters and brothers. Confession brings about reconciliation between God and the repentant, as well as between the penitent and others. Confession is help on Saturdays between 10h00 an 10h30. For urgent reconciliation needs please contact the parish office.
