Baptism

Baptisms are generally held on a Saturday at 12:30pm

Baptism is a sacrament of welcome. Jesus invites everybody to come to him and share his life. He especially loves children and wishes them to be close to him. We welcome enquiries from parents about the baptism of their children. The person who is baptised is invited to ‘taste and see that the Lord is good’ (Psalm 34:8). It takes a lifetime to grasp the riches of the mercy and love of God. When the person being baptised is a child the responsibility of forming the child in the faith falls on the parents and the parish community.

Enquiries from parents about the baptism of their child can be made at the Parish Office. You will be given a Baptism Registration Form to fill in and also a tentative date for your child’s baptism. Please bring a copy of your child’s birth certificate when completing the Form.

We invite parents to attend a meeting to explore the meaning of baptism and its implications for the life of the child. A member of the Baptism Preparation Team will contact you in advance of the baptism to arrange such a meeting.
