Sacraments

BAPTISM

Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons and daughters of God. We 


become members of the Body of Christ as we are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in 


her mission. We can’t wait to welcome your child into the life of Christ and our Church through 


Baptism. Boronia Parish offers baptism at St Joseph’s Catholic Church Boronia and at St 


Bernadette’s, the Basin.  Further information please refer to our Baptism page.


For adult baptism please refer to our RCIA link

RECONCILIATION


Reconciliation is a sacrament which can be celebrated repeatedly throughout one's life, and indeed 


Catholics are encouraged to receive this sacrament frequently. The precept of the Church says that 


Catholics ought to confess their sins in the sacrament of Confession at least once a year during the 


Easter Season.


Confessions are regularly held on Saturdays at 9.30am proceeding our morning mass.


To register for First Reconciliation please see our Religious Education page.

 


MARRIAGE


Congratulations on your engagement!  This is one of the most exciting seasons of your life.


In the Catholic Church, marriage is an important religious event. For Catholics, the Sacrament of 


Marriage, or Holy Matrimony, is a public sign that one gives oneself totally to another person. It is 


also a public statement about God: the loving union of husband and wife speaks of family values and 


also God's values. As such, preparing for marriage often means some deep reflection on how God 


fits into your life, your future and of course, your marriage.


For wedding arrangements and all details, please contact the Parish Office to make an appointment 


to see our Parish Priest Fr. Mirek Knap CR.

 



ANOINTING OF THE SICK


Jesus showed compassion toward the sick and suffering. The Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick 


extends God’s grace of spiritual strength, peace and courage to overcome the difficulties that going 


facing a serious health challenge or advanced age.


St Joseph’s Catholic Church Boronia has a Seniors Mass every second Friday of the month at 


11:30am where parishioners are most welcomed to be anointed.  The service is followed by a light 


luncheon.  Anointing is available during the week or during the weekend. Please contact us if you or a 


loved one would like to receive this sacrament.
