Sacraments and Funerals
Celebrating the sacraments is at the core of our parish life. Our big moments in life are marked in a solemn way from womb to tomb.
Here we provide all the details for the celebration of the sacraments in our parish.
Baptisms rotate around the three churches of the Parish. They are held on the first Saturday of the month at 12 noon.
Congratulations on your decision to get married. It’s an exciting time with lots of wedding planning ahead!
Confirmation 2020 will be celebrated in Broadford Church on Sunday, 22nd March at 11.30am. Bishop Nulty will administer the Sacrament.
Eucharist and First Communion
First Communion is celebrated in each of the churches of the parish every year.
Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession) takes place:
1. Before the Saturday evening Vigil Mass
2. Before the First Friday Mass.
Penitential Services take place during Advent and Lent.
Fr. Kavanagh is always available to hear Confessions upon request.
Housebound and Sacrament of the Sick
The sick and housebound of the parish are attended by Fr. Kavanagh in their homes on the First Friday of every month. Lay Ministers of the Eucharist are also available to distribute Holy Communion to the sick on Sundays or in time of need.
Many sick people also like to receive the sacrament of the sick and are strengthened and affirmed. If you would like to receive the Eucharist or the sacrament of the sick or know someone who would please contact the Parish Office or Father Kavanagh.
Holy Orders – Ministry of the Priest
Priests journey with people as they celebrate the beginning of life and as they mourn its ending. They bless the joyous love of couples at Marriage and nourish the steps of children, schools and families as people are prepared for First Confession, First Communion and Confirmation.
