Sacraments and Funerals

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.

Here we provide all the details for the celebration of the sacraments in our parish.

Funeral Arrangements

Baptism Arrangements

Until further notice all baptisms will be held in St Nicholas Church.  In line with current advise, up to 6 people can accompany the child.  Face masks must be worn & hand sanitiser is provided at the entrance door.  Please contact the Parish Office for more information and to book a baptism.  Baptisms are held on the 2nd and 4th weekend of each month.  Times: Saturday at  5.00pm  in St Nicholas Church & Sunday at 1.00pm in St Munchins College Chapel.
