A Welcome into the Christian Family
The sacrament of Baptism is a sacrament of initiation, one of three – Baptism, Holy Communion and Confirmation. It is time for celebration and joy. This is a special event which not only marks the beginning of a spiritual and sacramental life but also welcomes the child / adult into the parish community.
The sacrament of baptism is celebrated on the First Saturday of each month at 11.30 a.m. and the Third Sunday of each month immediately after the 11.30 a.m. Mass.
Our parish baptism team will help you plan and prepare for your child’s baptism and will assist the priest at the ceremony, representing the community in welcoming your child.
Special arrangements can be made for older children and adults wishing to receive the sacrament of baptism.
Please note: One month’s notice is required. The baptism form can be collected from the parish office or downloaded here.
