Baptism Program

The Baptism Program welcomes families preparing for the Sacrament of Baptism into our Parish Community.

Parents of all babies and toddlers requesting the Sacrament of Baptism for their children are asked to attend Baptism Presentation Mass on the 2nd Sunday of each month. The Baptism Preparation session (approx. 30mins) takes place in Friars room immediately after this Mass.

For anyone interested in joining the Baptism Preparation Team, we can organise a one-hour information/training session. You don’t have to remember everything you learnt at school about baptism or have a theology degree as we have a “cheat-sheet” with all the information you will need.

Baptism Team members are rostered and the more volunteers we have the lighter the commitment for every team member.  Please contact the Parish Office if you are interested in joining the Baptism Preparation Team.
