Sacramental Preparation


Individual baptisms of infants (aged under 7 years) usually take place on Saturday afternoons.

Parents wishing to have their children baptized over the coming months are expected to attend a Baptism Preparation Class.
Classes usually take place on the first Monday of the month at 7.00pm in the presbytery. (Please check the newsletter or with the parish office.)
There is no need to book for the class, just turn up.
Dates and times for baptisms can be arranged at the end of the class.
