Parents wishing to have their child baptised are asked to make an appointment to see the priest at the Parish.  If

you are residing outside the Parish of St. Anne Church and do not attend Mass at the church you will be asked to

contact your Parish Priest to request permission for your child's baptism to be celebrated at  St. Anne Church,


At an initial meeting, the meaning and purpose of Baptism will be looked at.  You are asked not to choose godparents until you

have met with the Parish Priest.  The preparation will continue over a few sessions, during this time a date for your child's baptism

will be fixed.


Children in Year 3 and above are eligible for these Sacraments.  Information for enrolment in 

preparation will be available, please email Mary Cuffe or Irene Fullerton @ ​


The Bishop will be coming on Monday 20th November at 6.30pm to celebrate the sacrament of confirmation. This important sacrament is the completion of our baptism and important source of grace for living the Christian life. Any child or adult over the age of 10 who has not yet been confirmed is eligible to receive this sacrament this November in our parish. Please let Fr Millar know by email ( if you or your child wish to be confirmed this autumn. Classes will begin in late September.


If you are planning to marry in the Catholic Church, speak to the Parish Priest before making any

preparation can begin.
