Baptism Preparation

Preparing and assisting families to celebrate the Sacrament of Baptism for their children is such a rewarding ministry.  Members of our Baptism Preparation Team are there to help in the formation of the parents and godparents of the children who are about to be baptized.  More than simply introducing the Rite of Baptism, this preparation reinforces the faith of the family!  Training will be provided!

Please call Mark Mahoney at the Parish Office (386-6178) if you think you might like to be part of our Baptism Preparation Team!

 

 

Marriage Preparation

While many engaged couples focus on preparing for their wedding day, the Church encourages you to spend your engagement preparing for a strong, lifelong marriage—and the responsibilities and challenges that come with it.  Marriage preparation programs take different forms, but they all aim to help couples talk about issues that may not have come up while they were dating, such as finances, raising kids, chores, family backgrounds, conflict resolution, and roles. Marriage preparation programs also supply couples with proven strategies for overcoming tough times.  Right now, all Marriage Preparation Courses within the English Dioceses are provided through St. Augustine’s Church in Moncton.

 

 

Funeral Services Team

Members of this ministry work in collaboration with the Bereavement Committee to assist in funeral celebrations in the Church. Empowered by Christ’s promise of resurrection, we face the event of death, console the bereaved, celebrate the life of the deceased and offer thanks to God.   We prepare the altar for the funeral Liturgy of the Eucharist,  make necessary liturgical preparations (the readings) and we are the visible presence of the Parish as we lead the procession in and out of the gathering space.   We are always in need of more to serve and training is provided, so if you feel called to this ministry, please contact the Parish office.
