From 2018, Infant Baptism is held on the second Sunday of every even month of the year (Feb, Apr, Jun, Aug, Oct & Dec). Parents and Godparents are required to attend the pre-baptismal program prior to Baptism (Held on the Friday before baptism). Dateline for submission is 2 weeks before the baptism date.
Children / Youth Baptism
Youth and children who are interested in the Catholic faith can join the Rite of Christian Initiation of Youths (RCIY) or Rite of Christian Initiation of Children (RCIC). Please contact the Catechetical Coordinator for further details.
Adults who are interested or would like to know more about the Catholic faith are warmly invited to join the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). Please contact the RCIA Ministry or approach any Priest for assistance.
First Holy Communion is normally celebrated by baptized children who are in Primary Three. They have to be registered with the Catechetical Ministry in Primary One to prepare them for this Sacrament.
For baptized Children / Youths (above Primary Three) who have not attended any Parish catechism classes can join the Rite of Christian Initiation of Youths (RCIY) or Rite of Christian Initiation of Children (RCIC). Please contact the Catechetical Coordinator for further details.
Arrangements for Church wedding should be made six months in advance. This would give the couple ample time to attend the Marriage Preparation Course or Engage Encounter Weekend. Please contact any of our Priests or the Parish Office for an application form and booking of the wedding date. A pre-nuptial briefing for the couple will be arranged by the Priest celebrating the Mass.
The parish priests are responsible for the sick within their own parish boundaries. In addition, Priests of the churches closest to the hospitals are also available for any hospitalized Catholic who requires a priest’s attention. They make visits to the hospitals and give Holy Communion to the sick. If informed, they will also visit you.

The Anointing of the Sick can be administered to any Catholic who is seriously ill and care providers are advised not to wait until the patient is critically ill or when death is imminent.
Our Priests, assisted by the Ministry to the Sick, are also available for home visits and prayers when a sick parishioner is confined to bed at home.
In cases of emergency, when a patient urgently requires the Anointing of the Sick and a priest from the nearby church is unavailable, our Priests can be contacted anytime to administer the said sacrament.
