Baptism in the Parish of St Thomas Aquinas
Baptising your child is an important step – in fact, the first step in your child’s faith journey. It is therefore important that you, as parents, be fully informed and prepared. Baptism is one of the most precious gifts you can give to your child – the promise of eternal life, the gift of becoming a child of God and a beloved member of God’s family.
The parish of St Thomas Aquinas is pleased to welcome your enquiries for the celebration of your wedding
A Church is not merely a picturesque or traditional place in which to wed. People who choose to be married in a church are actually choosing to make their commitment to each other publicly, in the presence of God, their families and friends. We in the Parish of St Thomas Aquinas regard this aspect of marriage with reverence and great importance.
Catholic Funerals in the Parish of St Thomas Aquinas
Celebrating the life of someone close to us is a very important aspect of our honouring their memory. The Catholic Church offers very beautiful liturgies to farewell the dead and commend them to God – either through a Requiem Mass or a Funeral Service. While our own funeral is not something that we would necessarily like to think about, we strongly recommend that you do take the time to plan key elements of your own funeral, and leave specific instructions for family and the parish priest.
