Living as a Catholic

The Seven Sacraments of the Church are visible signs of invisible grace given by God, to unite us with Him.


Become a child of God and join the Catholic Church.

“Unless you are born of water and the Spirit, you will have no life in You.”

Infants: should be baptised as soon as possible after birth. Contact Father to arrange (even during pregnancy):

Adults:  We have a Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) program called ‘Into the Deep’ (tailored to individual situations) to let you explore what the Catholic faith teaches with no pressure … and to properly prepare you for the great grace of Baptism.

First Communion

Sacraments of Initiation

Register your child for the Sacramental program. Classes are conducted in Polish. Classes in English – please contact Father to discuss.

Children should have reached the age of reason (about 7 or 8 years old) and must already be baptised. You will need to show your child’s Baptism certificate.

First Confession

Confession cleanses and heals our soul from sin. Frequent confession strengthens us to live a better life.

First Holy Communion

The Real Presence of Jesus in the Holy Eucharist is the source and summit of our faith. Catholics experience this miracle of the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ at every single Mass!


We receive an outpouring of the gifts of the Holy Spirit and become ‘soldiers for Christ’ in the battle against sin.


It takes three to get married: God, bride and groom. Being married in the Church is the best way to start life together and Our Lady of Victories church is a perfect wedding venue.

Parishioners and wider Polish community: If you are engaged to be married, make an appointment to see Father as early as possible:

You are also welcome to contact us if you have organised your own priest to perform the ceremony.


Anointing of the Sick
