Baptism

Baptism graphic  

The Sacrament of Baptism is the first step in a lifelong journey of commitment and discipleship.  Through baptism we are freed from the darkness of our world, we become sons and daughters of God and are embraced into the family of the Church.  Baptism removes the guilt and effects of Original Sin and incorporates the baptised into the Church, the Mystical Body of Christ on earth.  Catholic families are encouraged to baptise their children soon after birth, however sometimes people are baptised later, or even as adults.  Whether we are baptised as infants or adults, Baptism is the Church's way of celebrating and enacting the embrace of God.

     
Baptisms are usually held on Sundays at 12:00 noon and must be booked well in advance.  
Please note that families must belong to the parish in order for a Baptism to be held in our church.
