Sacraments

Holy Cross Altar

The reception of a sacrament is a most important moment in the life of a member of the Church community, and careful preparation should be made. Holy Cross, Croy offers a time of preparation to those who are to receive sacraments, to enable them to enter more fully into these great mysteries of our faith.

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

This is the normal form of preparation for those who are non-Christians to enter the Catholic Church. It may also be helpful for those who wish to enter into full Communion with the Catholic Church from other Christian traditions.

The time of meeting will be arranged to suit everyone concerned.

If you think you may be interested, further details can be obtained from Fr Sullivan. (This would also be appropriate preparation for adults wishing to celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation.) All are welcome!

Baptism

The sacrament of baptism is usually celebrated after 11.40am Sunday Mass, following an initial meeting with Fr Joe.

Please see Fr Joe after one of the Sunday or Vigil Masses for a date.
