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
Very big congratulations to our Primary 4 schoolchildren who make their First Holy Communion this weekend. Many thanks to their teachers, parents and fellow pupils who supported and encouraged them to the table of the Lord. Our sincere thanks too to the parish catechists who accompanied them on this journey. We pray that God will continue to feed and nourish them through the Body and Blood of the Risen One.
