We look forward very much to sharing with and your child the joy of Baptism and we want to offer to you all the help, friendship and support that Sacred Heart parish and school can give you in helping you and your children to grow in faith, and we have much to offer you – Children’s Liturgy during a 10.30am Sunday morning Mass; on Thursday evenings a series of meetings for adults to help us understand the Catholic faith better – these are really friendly and welcoming meetings.

Baptisms normally take place at 12.00noon on Sundays and to organise a Baptism please speak to Fr Tony and arrange a time to meet with him. As part of the preparation for your child’s baptism we will lend you a wonderful DVD resource Baptism: helping your child get the most from  life which you can watch in at home and then return to us.

Marriage preparation.

An important part of our marriage preparation programme is a full one day course provided by two couples from the parish who have attended Marriage Encounter weekends. They share the stories of their marriages and their faith with  the couples who are preparing for marriage. Everyone brings  some simple food to share  for lunch and the engaged couples have all found the day to be a moving and valuable part of their preparation
