Baptism

“Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian Life, the gateway to life in the Spirit, and the door which gives access to other sacraments.

 

Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons and daughters of God: we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission…” (Cathechism of the Catholic Church, 1213)

 

Infant and Older Children Baptism:

Infants and young children of registered parishioners are eligible to have their child baptized. This Sacrament is performed every Sunday with some exceptions. Baptisms are celebrated by appointment only and require a meeting with the priest before any date can be booked.

 

**Please note: In order to have your child baptized in the Roman Catholic Church, one or both parents have to been baptized Roman Catholic.
