Baptism is one of the Sacraments of Initiation and celebrates the reception of a child into the Christian community.
Baptism is celebrated every second Sunday at 10:00 am and every fourth Sunday at 10.00 am.
Parents are required to attend a Baptism Preparation Session, which is held every third Tuesday of the month.
A baptism team will assist and support your preparation for your child’s baptism.
Please get in touch with the Parish Office to make arrangements.
The baptized are fully initiated when they able to receive communion. To continue the initiation, journey the parish offers a preparation program for the sacraments of reconciliation confirmation and eucharist.
Our Sacramental preparation is parish-based. This means that our preparation is implemented and supported by the Parish. It is open to all parishioners and their families in our parish community irrespective of which school their children attend.
Preparation is ‘family centred.’ This means that parents are required to be actively involved with their children’s lessons during each of the preparation sessions.
While the school based Religious Education Curriculum supports and enriches our Sacramental preparation, the church recognises that the parents are the first educators of their children’s development in faith. After all, it is the parents who presented their child for Baptism into the Catholic Faith and promised to nurture that faith.
As parents, knowledge is not the key factor, but our faith and a willingness to spend time sharing with our child/children as they go through this journey of faith development.
Our preparation is only successful due to our committed Sacramental Team members who volunteer their time throughout the preparation.
In the Catholic tradition marriage is a sacramental covenant between a man and woman.
