Ministry to the Sick and Housebound

The Parish Priest is the ordinary Minister of the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Sacrament of the Sick, and Holy Communion. Please inform him . Communion can be taken to the housebound more regularly by Communion Ministers who have been delegated by the Priest. In case of admission to Hospital please inform the Chaplain.
EXTRAORDINARY MINISTERS OF COMMUNION
Between Sacred Heart and Christ the King there are over 50 trained ministers of Communion who assist in the distribution of Communion at Mass. They are commissioned on Holy Thursday.

Weddings and Baptisms

BAPTISMS
The celebration of Baptism will normally take place on the third or fourth Sunday of the month in one or other of the churches.
“ This child is now reborn in baptism …in confirmation he (she) will receive the fullness of God’s Spirit …in Holy Communion he (she) will share the banquet of Christ’s sacrifice calling God his (her) Father in the midst of the Church..” ( Rite of Baptism)
A new-born child is welcomed into the family without delay, and the welcome into the Church should follow soon afterwards.
Contact the parish priest after Mass on Sunday to begin the arrangements.

MARRIAGE
Couples intending to marry must make an appointment to see the parish priest before making any other arrangements, and at least 6 months before the proposed date. This allows time to follow a course of preparation and encouragement to work with Scottish Marriage Care, Falkirk, through the FOCCUS programme.
Contact the Secretary, See parish handbook for contact details.

The Protection Of Children And Vulnerable Adults.

Bishops’ Conference of Scotland.Policy
“The Catholic Church is concerned with the lives, safety, wholeness and well-being of each individual person within God’s purpose for everyone. It seeks to safeguard the
welfare of people of all ages who are involved in whatever capacity with the Church and its organisations. As a Church community we accept that it is the responsibility of all of us, ordained, professed, paid and voluntary members, to work together to prevent the physical, sexual, emotional abuse or neglect of children, young people and vulnerable adults.”
It is the responsibility of the Parish Priest to create and maintain an accurate record of all persons serving as
children’s/young people’s/vulnerable adults’ workers; and to ensure that they all undertake the training and
Disclosure Checks required by Law.
