Our Pre-Baptismal Programme is frequently the first point of contact between parish and new families.

It is widely appreciated by parents and families of newborn children.

Members of the Baptismal Team visit each home before the baptism takes place.

Early booking is advisable as the maximum number of children per baptism is four.

Baptisms take place on the 1st & 3rd Saturday of each month at 5.00 p.m.,
and also on the 4th Sunday of each month at 1.00 p.m.

A baptism outside these set-times will depend entirely on the availability of a priest.
