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, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission:

"Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water in the word."

Baptism of your child ideally takes place within the first few months after birth, but can happen later.

We are delighted that you are seeking baptism for your child with our parish.

Baptism Schedule:

  • Baptisms are celebrated September to June on scheduled Sundays at 2:00pm. The actual dates vary each month. Upon receipt of your submitted Baptism Request you will be contacted and advised of available dates.

  • We will book baptisms on a first come basis and currently book approximately 2-3 months in advance at maximum.

  • Please note due to the size of the parish we have a large number of baptism requests and cannot always accommodate specific requests for dates.

If parents reside outside of the boundaries of this parish they  will be required to present a letter of permission from the pastor of the parish in which they reside. If parents reside in this parish boundary they must be registered to pursue  baptism here.
