The Sacrament of Baptism

Baptism is when we become part of God’s family — the family of the Church — hence we are called the children of God.

It is defined by the Church as the door which gives access to the other sacraments (Catechism of the Catholic Church 1213).

In Baptism we are washed free from original sin, the sin we are all born in to, and begin a new life in Christ.

Parents who present their child for Baptism are then entrusted to pass on the faith and at the appropriate time present them to receive the other two Sacraments of Initiation – Confirmation and Eucharist.

Parents are required to attend Sunday Mass regulary. Please contact the Parish Priest for the application form and to make arrangements. Forms can also be downloaded from the link below.
