The Sacraments

The Second Vatican Council calls the Sacraments “Sign and instrument” for the union with God as well as the unity of mankind. Each of the sacraments is an outward sign of an inward grace and provides us with God’s healing power. The catholic church has seven sacraments. Baptism, Confirmation and the Holy Eucharist seal the initiation in the church. Hence they are known as the sacraments of initiation. Baptism and Confirmation are administered only once in a lifetime. The Holy Eucharist is celebrated frequently in order to keep membership to the church alive. We experience always the healing power of God through the sacraments of Reconciliation and the anointing of the sick. The positive effects of the sacraments of Matrimony/Marriage and Holy Orders unfold daily in life because of their very nature.


Infant baptism is done during the mass on Sundays. There is no fixed Sunday for this. The preparation for the infant baptism is done by the priests working in the community.
Adults could also be baptized but the preparation lasts longer and involves catechism classes. The initiation ceremony is done on the diocesan level and in the chaplaincy.

Holy Eucharist/Communion

We celebrate the Holy Eucharist regularly during the holy mass. We invite yearly the children who had their First Holy Communion in their different parishes to a Post Holy Communion Party in our Chaplaincy. We do not prepare children for the First Holy Communion nor do we celebrate same in our chaplaincy at the moment.


just like the First Holy Communion is done by the young people/youths in their different parishes and schools respectively. There is however, the possibility, for example to do it after a conversion with the permission of the diocese in our chaplaincy.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession)

offers the opportunity to examine one’s own life and so experience the assurance of God’s mercy and pardon. There is opportunity for confession 30 minutes  before holy mass on Sundays or by personal arrangement.

The Sacrament of Matrimony/Marriage (Wedding)

could be done in our chaplaincy. Couples will be prepared by the Parish Priest or his representative.

The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick

The priests are ready to come to you and anoint you at any time and you will receive the healing power of God through this sacrament.

Kindly contact the parish office if you wish to receive any of these sacraments. You will receive detailed information there.
