Welcoming New Members to Our Faith Community
Holy 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 sons 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 world.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church 1213)
Baptism is the first sacrament. It incorporates us into the Church and through it, we are ‘reborn’ as daughters and sons of God. Baptism is performed by the pouring of water and the words ‘I baptise you in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit’.
Parents who ask to have their children baptised accept the responsibility of training them in the practice of the faith and bringing them up to keep God’s commandments.
You will need to meet with Father Tadeusz in order to arrange the baptism. Download the Baptism application form and give to the Parish Priest or email it to the Parish.
The child and family will be introduced to the community at a Mass prior to the celebration of the Sacrament.
