Receiving the Sacraments

On Sunday 3 November,  students of Sacred Heart College gathered together with the Catholic Parish of Napier to celebrate Baptism, Confirmation and First Communion of Ana Worthington and the First Communion of Kelsie Hawkins. The Gospel read during the Mass reminded us that Jesus has a special love for people who turned from their lives of sin to repent and live the way that God wants. Father Barry invited us to reflect on how Jesus seeks us out, like he has done with Ana and Kelsie. A special thanks must be made to Victoria Ruru, our Youth Minister, who preprared the girls alongside Father Barry. 

If you are interested in receiving the sacraments or becoming Catholic please speak to one of the RE teachers at school or our Youth Minister. We will make contact with the local Parish, either Napier or Hastings and help arrange a suitable programme to help you grow in your faith.
