Preparation for the Sacrament of Baptism

Through Baptism we become part of the family of the Church. Baptism is the gateway to our Christian faith and it is important that parents seeking Baptism for their child have an appreciation of the Sacrament and the responsibilities they are accepting.

Because Baptism is the first step on our faith journey it is a special family celebration. All important events in life need preparation so at St Mary & St John Bosco we ask you to attend a short course which will give you a better understanding of what you, as a parent, are undertaking in having your child baptised into the Catholic Church.

The course is presented in a relaxed way and consists of three sessions covering different areas of our Catholic faith. If you would like to have your child baptised at St Mary's or St John Bosco Church or if you are an adult who wishes to be baptised you will need to make arrangements with the Parish Priest.
