Sacraments

Jesus gave his followers the Sacraments as the most wonderful ways of experiencing his closeness, his love, and his mercy.
If you have been away from the Church for a long time, why not come back through the Sacrament of Reconciliation?
Fr Duane would love to hear from you!  

Baptism

Baptism is the first Sacrament, where infants, older children or adults are "born again" of water and the Holy Spirit, and are united with Jesus and his body, the Church. We become one family of God, brothers and sisters in Christ, and beloved children of our heavenly Father! Baptisms are celebrated on the 2nd Sunday of each month at 12pm. Please contact the Parish office at least one month prior to your desired Baptism ceremony.

Anointing of the Sick

The Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick is a "Sacrament of Healing", where a sick person is anointed with the Oil of the Sick, which brings the spiritual healing of Jesus's mercy, as well as prayers for their physical health and well-being. Please contact Fr Duane any time if you or anyone you know would like to receive this Sacrament.

Reconciliation

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is a wonderful Sacrament of Healing, which brings reconciliation with God and with the Church. The very desire for the Sacrament is itself the prompting of God's Spirit, who leads us back to Jesus to begin again and again in his mercy.
Wednesdays 4:30pm-5:20pm
Saturdays 9:30am-10:30am
Or by appointment with Fr Duane

Marriage

Through the Sacrament of Marriage God unites the bride and groom as one for life. Their love becomes a symbol of Christ's love for his Church, and God promises to be with them to help them to live out their marriage vows all the days of their life. If you are interested in getting married in our Parish, please contact the parish office at least 6 months prior to your wedding day.

Eucharist

The Eucharist is the "source and summit" of our Catholic life, where we believe we receive the most intimate Communion with Jesus and with one another. All are welcome to attend Mass at our Parish. Pre-registering through unanderra@dow.org.au is helpful, but you can also register at the door. If you are unable to attend at this time, you can join our live stream Mass and receive "spiritual communion".

Confirmation

The Sacrament of Confirmation is closely connected to the Sacrament of Baptism, and is a "strengthening" of our Baptism, where we are empowered by the Holy Spirit to join the mission of the Church as full and mature members of the Body of Christ. Bishop looks forward to celebrating this Sacrament with our children in Year 6 above later this year!
