The Sacrament of Baptism
We would like to congratulate you on the birth of your child. We also want to welcome this new born child into our Parish Community. Your child’s Baptism will be a special moment for you and your family. It will also be a special moment for our parish as we welcome your child into the Christian Community.
Celebrating the Gift Of Baptism
Baptism is the most wonderful gift that you can give a child. To enable parents to appreciate more fully the gift they ask of God, through the Church, for their child we have introduced Baptismal Programme.
The programme begins during pregnancy when the expectant parents are invited for blessing for themselves and their unborn baby. Parents are asked to come to the sacristy after the weekend Masses. After this blessing the parents will receive a prayer that they can say during the pregnancy.
When the baby is born the parents will be invited to an evening of celebration before arranging the Baptism ceremony. Baptisms take place on Saturdays at 3.30pm. The number of baptisms that take place on a Saturday is limited to four.
