Most of our members are still baptised as babies or as younger children. To assist this we offer:

  • A formation session for the parents and god parents;
  • A Rite of Presentation at a Sunday mass, where the first part of the Baptism Rite is celebrated;
  • Baptism on a Saturday or Sunday, either during Mass or late morning. Baptisms are often celebrated as a group of families, identifying we are Baptised into the Church not just our family.

Baptisms are celebrated in all our Churches, depending on the desire of the parents.
