Baptism is the foundation Sacrament and the prerequisite for all other Sacraments. Baptism is a part of choosing what is best for your child. After Baptism it is asked that you demonstrate to your child your own commitment to the faith by bringing your child to Mass, and leading them by example through to their First Holy Communion and Confirmation. A lay catechist runs a short preparation course prior to Baptism. Please use the “email the parish office" button to get in touch or for more information.
