Holy Baptism

Holy Baptism is the Sacrament of the Church by which a person (at any and every age and stage of life) is drawn into the Church and made a member of Christ’s Mystical Body. In Baptism the spot and stain of Original Sin is washed away, we receive God’s sanctifying grace, and we are re-born to a new, higher, and supernatural life with Christ. Nothing is the same after we have emerged from the waters of the Font!

The Clergy warmly welcome enquiries for Holy Baptism.

The Sacrament of Baptism is celebrated on Sunday mornings as part of the High Mass at 10.30am or as part of the Family Mass at 12.15pm. Baptism comes at the end of a period of teaching and preparation.

The best way to make contact with the Clergy is by coming along to the Mass on a Sunday morning and introducing yourself in person. From there, a conversation can begin.

May God pour upon you the riches of his grace, that within the company of Christ’s pilgrim people, you may come to the inheritance of the saints in glory.
