The Church encourages baptism of infants born of Catholic parents, as soon as possible after the birth of a child. When the parent/s and godparents profess the faith of the Catholic Church, then children may receive the grace of baptism. Baptism and Faith are some of the greatest gifts parents can give their child.
Infant Baptisms are celebrated in the church immediately following the 10:00am Mass in the Sefton Parish and after the 9:00am Mass in the Villawood Parish. Please contact the Parish Office to book a date.
Baptism Preparation Class
Baptism Preparation classes are available for parents. The Baptism Preparation class is held on the first Wednesday of the month, in the Church from 7:30pm.
In the class, parents receive instruction on the rites, fruits and responsibilities of the sacrament of Baptism and the role that parents hold as nurturers of the life that God has entrusted to them. The class also calls attention to the responsibility of godparents to foster the Catholic faith.
If this is your first child, or you are yet to attend a Baptism Preparation Course, please contact the Parish Office to book into a class.
