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 enrolement in
preparation will be available through the Parish bulletin in January 2018 or please email
Mary Cuffe or Yvonne Stewart @ email@example.com
It is over three years since we last had Confirmations in the parish. Before we can book a date with the Bishop of Lancaster for 2018, we need to find out how many candidates we have. Any children, who will be in Year 6 or above during the school year 2017/18, are invited to prepare for Confirmation by writing a letter to the Parish Priest requesting confirmation and giving contact details. We will leave this open for a few weeks, see how many candidates we have and then make plans.
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.
