Baptisms, Weddings, Funerals
If you would like to be married at St Stephen's Church or have your child baptised here please come to the parish Office Houser on Saturday mornings from 10.30am-12 Noon. Or come and speak to a priest after any of our Masses.
If you need to have your Banns read in church please bring identification and documentation to the Office Hour.
Baptisms are celebrated either at the 10am Parish Mass on the 1st Sunday of the month or at 12 Noon on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month. There is no charge for Baptisms although we do ask you to consider making a donation to church funds.
Weddings need to be booked well in advance in case there are issues about documentation. We also require a deposit when booking a wedding. This can all be discussed with the parish clergy.
If you live within the bounds of the parish you are entitled to have a priest from St Stephen's conduct your funeral or the funeral of members of your family. The funeral director will be in touch with the priest. You have only to ask to have the funeral at St Stephen's or conducted by a member of our clergy team.
