PARISH INFANT BAPTISM
Our parish treasures our baptismal families and look forward to celebrating with you. We are aware of the demands of young children and have provided as much information as possible so as you are able to prepare for your baby’s Baptism without the need to visit the parish office too often.
Much of the administration is able to be completed by booking through the Trybooking link below.
You are expected to book and attend one Preparation Meeting, held monthly, at which you are given information about the sacrament and what will happen at the Baptism. There is a donation of $100 and a small booking fee required to cover all costs. At the preparation meeting you will be given an information envelope, the candle and stole.
At this preparation meeting you will be able to book and confirm your Baby’s Baptism date as well as a date just prior to the Baptism when we ask you come along to any of the Parish Masses to celebrate a Welcoming Rite. Your Baby’s Sponsors are welcome to attend too.
Sponsor or Sponsors you choose are those who would support you in your child’s faith development and maturity, those who appreciate the privilege and responsibility of being chosen as a Sponsor. Sponsors are a baptised Catholic, one male, one female and over the age of 16yrs.
You are very welcome to call or pop into the parish office during the hours of 9 to 1pm, Monday to Thursday and 9 – 5pm Friday.
We look forward to meeting you, your little one and family.
PARISH SCHOOL AGE CHILDRENS’ SACRAMENTS
Children who have not completed their sacraments are able to do so through our catholic schools. If your child attends one of the local government schools, our parish has an out of school catechist program to prepare children to celebrate sacraments.
Inquirers are welcome to call the parish office for further information.
PARISH ADULT SACRAMENTS
Our parish welcomes adults who may be interested in exploring the catholic faith through the process of the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. Inquirers are welcome to call the parish office for further information.
