The baptism of an infant is the beginning of a child’s faith life and journey with the Christian community. It is therefore an important decision for parents to make on behalf of their child. For a child to be baptised a Catholic is it essential that one parent is a Catholic and that both parents agree to nurture the faith life of the child as much as possible. It is also essential that Godparents are baptised Christians, one being a Catholic.
Baptismal Preparation/Rehearsal is on the 3rd Sunday of the month at 10.00 a.m. followed by Baptism of infants is celebrated every second and fourth Sunday morning after 9.00 a.m. mass.
