Marriage, Baptism, Funerals, Sacrament of the Sick
Marriage in the Catholic faith is the sacrament that makes Christ and his love present in the world. For couples wishing to marry in our church, one or both people must be a confirmed Catholic. Marriage preparation takes place once a year from January to March and is run as a series of evening sessions from 7.30 to 9pm by agreement with the participants.
Baptism and Baptismal preparation is run as a single session three to four times a year in groups of couples, giving parents an opportunity to meet up with other parents.
If you need to arrange a funeral, please contact Canon Nunan as soon as possible. He can provide support and advice about the service and the practicalities as well as pastoral support to you and your family.
The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick is for those who are dying and require ‘the last rites’ and also for those who are facing serious or life-limiting illness (including mental health issues) or a serious operation. It should not be received ‘frequently’ or for minor illnesses. Baptised babies and infants are not considered to require it – not having done anything that needs forgiveness.
Your first point of contact for any of these Sacraments is Canon Nunan at the Parish Office on firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01937 582283. Canon Nunan can also let you know more about ‘Stole’ fees for Masses, Funerals, Baptisms and Weddings.
