Baptism Cermonies are done the 1st & 3rd Sunday of the month at 11.45am (by appointment)
The Sacrament of Baptism is the beginning of our initiation into the Christian community.
It is a Sacrament which should not be delayed for too long as it is the beginning of our faith journey and brings with it many wonderful gifts from our Loving Father through the encounter with Jesus Christ that takes place on the day of Baptism.
In booking for a Baptism, it is important to remember that parents need to attend a Baptism Preparation evening before the Baptism. All bookings are made through the Parish Office.
You will also need to fill out a Baptism application form. The original copy of the completed Baptism application form must be submitted to the Parish Office. Email / Fax copies of this form will not be accepted.
This preparation evening provides an understanding of the Baptismal Ceremony and what it means to the parents and the child to be baptised. It is also an occasion where parents reflect on the privilege they have in developing the spiritual life of their child. Baptism is an event, but it is much more – it is the beginning of the journey of faith; each day of our lives we are living out our Baptism.
We would use this opportunity to remind you that Baptisms should take place in the parish you belong to, which may be the geographic location of the parish or the parish where you are involved and where you worship.
