INFORMATION ABOUT INFANT BAPTISM

 

 

Some important information for parents on Infant Baptism:

 

 

Baptism Preparation

 

Preparation session for parents and god-parents of children to be baptised are conducted on the last Sunday of the month. The baptism of children is done on the 1st Sunday of the month. Application forms for the baptism of children must be submitted by the Sunday before the baptism preparation. Late submission will not be entertained and no walk-in last minute applicants will be admitted to the preparation session.

 

 

Choosing a God-parent

No special infant baptisms

 

Please note that baptism is a community celebration and as such no private request for infant baptism will be entertained. Parents are kindly reminded to plan their child’s baptism, including the arrival of guests and relatives from overseas, to coincide with our scheduled 1st Sunday baptism.

 

 

Parents not married in Church

 

Please note that parents who want to baptize their child must themselves have been married in a Catholic church. If your marriage is a civil marriage, you may have to have your marriage convalidated first before your child can be baptised. If in doubt, please contact a priest.
