Baptism

fontBaptism is the start of the Christian journey and is part of the process leading to the full initiation into the Catholic Church.

When parents present a child for baptism they are making a commitment of faith.

The aim of the Baptism Preparation programme is to prepare and instruct parents who wish to make that commitment and have their child baptised into the Catholic Church.

Parents are asked to attend two sessions, during which they will learn about and discuss the significance of baptism and the role that they will be expected to fulfil in raising their child as a Christian within the Catholic Church.
