Sacrament Of Baptism

Baptism is the Sacrament of Spiritual rebirth and initiation into the Christian Faith. Through the symbolic action of washing with water and the use of appropriate ritualistic formula, the baptized person is cleansed of all sins and incorporated into Christ. He/ she become a member of the Church and receive the graces of supernatural life.


First Holy Communion

Holy Communion is the Body and Blood of Jesus which becomes present for us when the priest consecrates the bread and wine at Mass. Jesus gives Himself to us in Communion as a sign of God’s presence and to deepen our relationship with Him and His disciples.



The purpose is to initiate our catholic youth in building their faith stronger in Jesus Christ and awakening their faith to serve His Church through a curriculum drafted by the Archdiocese. As the Catholic youth matures and becomes a candidate for Confirmation the preparations assist the child to encounter the grace of God through outpouring of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit.


The Sacrament of Reconciliation

The Catechism of the Catholic Church States (CCC): "the forgiveness of sins committed after Baptism is conferred by a particular sacrament, called the sacrament of conversion, confession, penance, or reconciliation." (CCC 1486)


Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick

The Sacrament in which the sick are anointed with holy oil is called Holy Anointing. Only a priest can administer the anointing of the sick. If a person is to be operated family, friends and those who care for the sick, have the responsibility to inform the priest early, and help prepare the sick person for the reception of the Sacrament of Anointing of the sick.


The Sacrament of Matrimony

The following guidelines are being used in order to ensure that the sanctity and reverence of the church is preserved and the Eucharistic celebration with the Rite of Marriage is conducted with devotion, dignity and decorum. Some of these guidelines are also applicable for the celebration of any anniversary of marriage


Holy Orders

Holy Order is the Sacrament through which the mission entrusted by Christ to His apostles continues to be exercised in the church until the end of time. Thus it is the Sacrament of Apostolic ministry (Vat II).


Sunday Catechism

Sunday Catechism is meant for all school going children up to Std X and is held every Sunday at St. Xavier’s High school. Catechism from 08.00 am to 09.00 am followed by Mass. All parents have the responsibility to send their school going children to learn more about the life of Jesus and live better Spiritual life.


Rite of Funeral

Upon the death of a loved one only a family member must contact the priest in the parish before fixing the date and the time of the funeral. Do not ask the undertaker to do the same.


Attending Mass

One of the important precepts of the Church is to hear Mass on Sundays and holy days of obligation. There are 52 Sundays and 2 days of obligation (15th August and 25th December). To fulfill the days of obligation every Christian is expected to attend Mass either on Saturday evening after 5.00pm or on Sundays.
