Sacraments

A Life Long Journey of Faith

Confirmation  bride  baptism 1  FirstEucharist 

In our parish community we seek to accompany one another through the many stages of life. Part of our journey as a Catholic community is the celebration of these stages through the sacraments.

The Gungahlin area is growing at an extraordinary rate with new families moving into the community every week.

We hope to share many family milestones with you, such as marriage or the arrival of a new baby, starting or graduating from school and much more. We are also here to support you in the challenges that face all of us.

Our community is strengthened as we celebrate Christ together in the sacraments of the Church. They sustain and strengthen us in our life's journey in faith.

Apart from the Sacrament of the Eucharist celebrated at each Mass, we celebrate all the other Sacraments of the Church. These include Baptism (infants, school-aged children, adults), Reconciliation, First Eucharist (Communion), Confirmation, Marriage, and the Anointing of the Sick.

As Catholics we believe that our lives are graced by God through these sacraments.
