Rite of Children’s Baptism: Important information
About two years ago, Archbishop Tartaglia gave permission for baptism to be administered to children between the ages of1 month to 14years using the Rite for Children’s baptism. What this means is that teenagers under the age of fifteenth are no longer required to do Catechumenate programme before being baptised. For more information on this please contact the Fr Anthony.
May Devotion
The Month of May is a month traditionally devoted to Mary in the Catholic Church. It is always marked by different acts of devotion in honor of our Lady. We are going to mark it our parish with Rosary and Benediction every Mondays and Wednesdays throughout the month. It begins each day with the exposition of the Blessed Sacrament—Rosary—Benediction.
First Holy Communion
Our parish Primary 4 schoolchildren will celebrate their first Holy Communion on Sunday 14th May at 10am Mass.

Please remember these children in your prayers as they journey with us to the Lord’s Table.
