Courses are held according to need but usually about 3 or 4 times per year, for first time parents and for those anticipating the birth of their first child. If you have attended a Baptism course in the last three years, you may arrange your baby’s baptism without attending a course. If it has been longer than three years, we ask you to attend a one-off refresher course. These are arranged as necessary. To arrange a baptism, in all cases, you should submit a completed baptism application form, which has been signed by me, Susanna Hawksley. I can be contacted at email@example.com
Baptism Preparation Course
Our next course is on
Sunday 21st July 3 pm – 4:30 pm and Sunday 28th July 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm, immediately followed by the first anointing of Baptism at the 5 pm Mass.
All enquiries about preparation for sacraments should be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org
You will be given a baptism application form at the course. After completion of the course, you will need to contact one of the parish clergy to arrange the actual baptism. You should return the application form fully completed at least a week before the baptism so that the certificate can be prepared.
You can access the Baptism Book to prepare for the service, choosing the readings (if outside Mass) and practising bidding prayers, by clicking on the blue link below.
