Your child is a gift from God, which enriches your life and creates the joy of family life. Through baptism your child will become part of our parish family, and a member of the Catholic Church, calling God, ‘Our Father’. This is because your child has become a child of God, united with Jesus Christ.
Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit, and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as children of God; we become members of Christ, we are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission.
(Catechism of the Catholic Church)
Parents requesting baptism for their child are asked to attend a course. Please see details in the newsletter.
