baptismBaptism is not simply a “naming ceremony” or even just a blessing for a new baby. It is the beginning of the Christian life and the gateway to eternal life. Because of this, the sacrament of Baptism is taken very seriously in the Church.

Baptisms are normally carried out on Saturdays at 12 noon. You will be expected to attend one preparation session before the baptism. Please see Fr Nicholas for details or look out for special announcements in the newsletter. The preparation will enable you to fully understand the sacrament and help you to take on the responsibilities of bringing up your child in the practice of the Catholic faith. Baptism can only be administered when at least one parent is a Catholic.
