“One Lord, one faith, one baptism” [Ephesians 4:5]
Baptism Program :
Baptising your child is an important step – in fact, the first step in your child’s faith journey. It is therefore important that you, as parents, be fully informed and prepared. Baptism is one of the most precious gifts you can give to your child – the promise of eternal life, the gift of becoming a child of God and a beloved member of God’s family.
Parents sometimes defer the baptism of their child, saying, “We’re letting it be their choice.” The reality is that, unless a child is baptised as a child, they will probably not opt for baptism later on – and it’s a much longer process when they do.
Baptism Preparation :
We invite catholic Parents of children under 7 years of age and living in the parish, who have plans to have their child Baptised / Christened in the coming months to attend a Baptismal Preparation Evening. God parents are also encouraged to attend. This is held on the last Thursday of the month at 7.pm in the Church, January – November. Enrolment forms can be collected from the Parish office.
Usually on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the Month from 11.00am, February – December. At present due to Covid we are not having group baptisms, but baptisms take place within family groups at 30 minutes intervals usually from 11.00am to 12 noon.
