My dear Parishioners of St. Anne’s

I am very happy to present to you the book “Parish Sacramental Guidelines and Other Parish Directives” to help you understand, the parish policies regarding the various Sacraments administered in our Church.

The guidelines will help our parishioners to follow proper Church procedures while celebrating the various Sacraments. Therefore the purpose of this book is to facilitate enhanced understanding about the meaning of the Sacraments, the procedure, the preparation, requirements and its celebration. The book also gives details about the work of the parish office and guidelines regarding funerals.

The guidelines formulated are taken from various Church documents and sources like the Code of Canon Law, Pastoral Handbook for the Clergy etc. These guidelines have been discussed and deliberated by the Parish team.

A copy of the book will be given to every family. The family can sit together and discuss the various points and details outlined in the book in order to have a better knowledge of the procedures involved in receiving Sacraments.
