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, Westby. 

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.

Reconciliation & First Holy Communion

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

preparation will be available, please email Mary Cuffe or Yvonne Stewart @


If your child is Year 6 or above and would like to join the Holy Family confirmation programme please let the Priest in Charge or one of the catechists here know. 

Marriage Preparation

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

making any arrangements regarding date or venue.  A minimum of six months

notice of an intended marriage is required.  Once it is established that both parties

are free to marry in the Catholic Church, the preparation can begin.
