The Sacrament of Baptism

A child, through the Sacrament of Baptism, will become a member of the family of God on earth, the Church. By Baptism a child becomes a member of the parish. Through the grace of this sacrament the child will share in the very life of God Himself. This life is increased by the reception of the sacraments, especially Holy Communion, and by regular prayer.

The words of the ceremony are addressed to the parents, who ask for Baptism for their child and who are responsible for bringing up their children as good Catholics. They will do this mainly by the example of their own lives, by teaching them their prayers, and by going to Holy Communion with them.

Each child needs a new baptismal candle (available at the Sacristy) that can be kept as a memento, used on Birthday celebrations, First Holy Communion and Confirmation. It is expected that you make a donation to the Church on the occasion of Baptism.

We expect to be able to broadcast baptism ceremonies on the second Sunday of each month on the live web which will enable family and friends who cannot attend to view.
