The celebration of baptism is always a joyful occasion. Children and babies are baptized on the understanding that they are brought up in the Christian faith, and experience regularly the worship of the Christian community. When they are old enough to profess the Christian faith for themselves, they are confirmed by a bishop at the age of around 10.
If you want your child to be baptized, please be in touch with Fr Peter concerning possible dates and return this Baptism application form to him filled in. Our usual practice is to baptize babies during our 11am Sung Mass on a Sunday morning.
