Baptism (Infants)

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 on the 2nd and 4th Sundays every month immediately following the 10:00am Mass.

Baptism Preparation Class

Baptism Preparation classes are available for parents and godparents. The one-hour Baptism Preparation class is held on the 3rd Sunday of the month, immediately following the 10:00am Mass.

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.
