Baptism

baptismParents wishing to have their infants baptised must first undergo some preparation.

Parents and Godparents are required to attend two one-hour sessions (usually on consecutive weeks). These sessions take place four times a year, usually in October, January, April and July.

Please speak to the Parish Priest or Sister Margarita if you wish to register for the baptism of your child. Parents are advised that they are welcome to undertake the preparation before their child is born, if they so wish.

The Catholic Church encourages parents to have their children baptised as soon as possible after birth.

Parents should also be aware that some Secondary Schools currently have admissions criteria which state that the child must have been baptised within six months or a year.
