Marriage, Baptism, Funerals, Sacrament of the Sick
Marriage in the Catholic faith is sacrament that makes Christ and his love present in the world and at least one of you must be a confirmed Catholic to be married in the Church. 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.
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 others in a similar situation.
If you are arranging 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 not just for those who are dying and require ‘the last rites’. It is 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 and 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.
