The Grangemouth Parish Pastoral Council is a representative body of volunteers from Christ the King and Sacred Heart, with elections for 4 new members each year. They meet at least 5 times a year to plan prayerfully and promote matters of pastoral interest for the parish linked with the neighbouring parishes in our Deanery and Archdiocese. Items for the agenda are welcome from Parishioners and Groups.

Confessions & Adoration

EXTRAORDINARY MINISTERS OF COMMUNION
Between Sacred Heart and Christ the King there are over 50 trained ministers of Communion who assist in the distribution of Communion at Mass. They are commissioned on Holy Thursday.
The celebration of Baptism will normally take place on the third or fourth Sunday of the month in one or other of the churches.
“ This child is now reborn in baptism …in confirmation he (she) will receive the fullness of God’s Spirit …in Holy Communion he (she) will share the banquet of Christ’s sacrifice calling God his (her) Father in the midst of the Church..” ( Rite of Baptism)
A new-born child is welcomed into the family without delay, and the welcome into the Church should follow soon afterwards.
Contact the parish priest after Mass on Sunday to begin the arrangements.
Couples intending to marry must make an appointment to see the parish priest before making any other arrangements, and at least 6 months before the proposed date. This allows time to follow a course of preparation and encouragement to work with Scottish Marriage Care, Falkirk, through the FOCCUS programme.
Contact the Secretary, See parish handbook for contact details.

“The Catholic Church is concerned with the lives, safety, wholeness and well-being of each individual person within God’s purpose for everyone. It seeks to safeguard the
welfare of people of all ages who are involved in whatever capacity with the Church and its organisations. As a Church community we accept that it is the responsibility of all of us, ordained, professed, paid and voluntary members, to work together to prevent the physical, sexual, emotional abuse or neglect of children, young people and vulnerable adults.”
It is the responsibility of the Parish Priest to create and maintain an accurate record of all persons serving as
children’s/young people’s/vulnerable adults’ workers; and to ensure that they all undertake the training and
