Sacraments

Baptisms

We joyfully invite expectant parents to share the beauty and wonder of your child by registering for Baptism at least three months before the birth of your child.

Your baby’s initiation into the Roman Catholic Church requires that you attend a preparation class, be registered in the parish, and prepare yourself for the continuing responsibility of raising your child as a Catholic. For more information call us (09) 275 5401 or E mail us office@mangerecatholic.org.nz

First Communion

It is the first time that a person receives the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist, which is the eating of consecrated bread and drinking of consecrated wine. Most Catholic children receive their First Holy Communion when they are 7 or 8 years old. For more information call us (09) 275 5401 or E mail us  office@mangerecatholic.org.nz

Confirmation

Students in year 8 or older are invited to enroll in the preparation program for the Sacrament of Confirmation.

Candidates will share in class instructions, spiritual formation, small faith communities, Christian witness and community formation.
