Baptism celebrates the beginning of life as a Christian and is the sacrament which welcomes a new member into the life of the Christian community. Baptism of children in our two communities is celebrated on Sundays, sometimes within the celebration of 10am Mass and sometimes after Mass. To make arrangements for baptism in either of our two communities in the first place please contact Philita in the Parish Office.
All families need to take part in our Baptism Preparation Programme prior to the baptism of their first child in either of our two communities (there is no requirement to take part in the programme prior to the baptism of subsequent children). The aim of the session is to provide some background on the celebration of baptism and to offer a reflection on the meaning of baptism in Christian life. To book into the Baptism Preparation Programme please contact Philita in the Parish Office.
For some background to what is involved in the baptism of your child please read our small booklet on baptism by clicking on this link:
Prior to your child’s baptism you will also need to fill out a form giving us some family details so that the baptism can be recorded in the baptismal register. You can either collect that form from the Parish Office or you can download it by clicking on the link below.
