Who is eligible to receive the Sacraments of Penance and Holy Communion?

Only those who have been baptised in the Roman Catholic Church are eligible to receive the Sacrament of Penance and Holy Communion. A Baptismal Certificate will be required for each child for verification. Children of other denominations and none are not eligible.

What do I need to do to register my child on the Parish Program?

The On-Line Registration form will need to be completed fully and may require the uploading of your child’s Baptismal Certificate. Please read the following carefully:

  1. If your child was baptised in St Mochta’s Church, please fill in the Date of Birth and Baptismal details in the On-line Registration form. If you have a copy of the Baptismal Certificate at hand, please upload it on the site.
  2. For children who were baptised in a Catholic Church other than St Mochta’s, a Baptismal Certificate MUST BE uploaded at the time of online registration before your child can be enrolled on the Preparation programme. Please contact the church of baptism to acquire one as soon as possible. An electronic copy will be acceptable.
  3. If you do not have a Baptismal Certificate available at the time of On-Line Registration, you will NOT be able to register your child online, please contact us and we will advise you of what you need to do.
  1. Full registration will ONLY be possible on receipt of your child’s Baptismal Certificate.
