Holy Family R.C. Church
Freckleton & Warton

SACRAMENTAL PROGRAMME

Baptism
Parents wishing to have their child baptised are asked to make an appointment to see Father Kevin. If you are
residing outside Holy Family parish 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 Holy Family church.

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 Father Kevin. The preparation will continue over a few sessions, during this time a date for your child's baptism will be fixed.

Reconciliation and First Holy Communion
Children in Year 3 and above are eligible for these Sacraments. Information for enrolment in preparation will be available through the parish bulletin in January 2016.

Confirmation
Young people are prepared over a few weeks prior to Bishop Michael's next visit. His next visit has still to be arranged. If you have any queries regarding the Sacrament of Confirmation please speak to Father Kevin.

Marriage Preparation
If you are planning to marry in the Catholic Church speak to Father Kevin 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 partners are free to marry in the Catholic Church the preparation can begin.
