In the sacraments of initiation - Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist - we are freed from the power of darkness. We are joined to Christ’s death, burial and resurrection. We receive the Spirit of adoption making us God’s sons and daughters. With the entire people of God we celebrate the memorial of the Lord’s death and resurrection.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is an integral part of the Christian life, acknowledging our need to confess our wrong doing and receive the mercy of the Lord - which is always freely given.
It is celebrated regularly during the week - on Thursdays from 5pm-5:45pm (during Adoration), and Saturday afternoons before the Vigil Mass - from 5:15-5:45pm. There are additional services during Lent and Advent.

The Eucharist is the highpoint of the Christian life - it is both the source of our life in community and the summit of all we do. The Lord Himself feeds us with His Body and Blood - could there be any more precious gifts?

Baptised Catholic Children in Year 3 and up are able to begin their preparation for the Sacrament of Reconciliation where they begin to understand that they sometimes make poor choices that prevent them from living in the freedom of a child of God.
We call these poor choices sins. Once a child has celebrated the Sacrament of Reconciliation which restores them in their relationship with God and the community, they are able to then receive the Sacrament of Eucharist (First Holy Communion), where they receive the Body of our Lord Jesus under the form of bread.

A person who has already been baptised into the community of faith that is the Church and received the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Communion, now continues their initiation in this life of faith as a disciple of Jesus Christ through preparing for and receiving the sacrament of Confirmation. In the Diocese of Wollongong it is offered to Catholic children in Year 6 and upwards.

Marriage is the covenant by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life. It is ordered by its nature to the good of both spouses and the procreation and education of offspring, and which "has been raised by Christ the Lord to the dignity of a sacrament between the baptised."

If you would like to celebrate your wedding at St Columbkille's, I encourage you to come to Sunday Mass to experience the church in use and talk to the Priest after Mass. 
Marriages are by appointment with the Parish Priest.
