BAPTISM – Updated May 2021

After a very nice socially distanced gathering of Baptism parents recently, we are now on the road to having regular Baptisms once again.

If you are seeking to have your child baptised and are regularly attending Mass, then please ask Fr David for a Baptism Application Form and once filled in and returned he will advise you on how to take the next steps.

To request a baptism for your child you need to come along to Sunday Mass at 11.00am at St Anthony of Padua (or 9.30am at Our Lady and St Columba.) Please keep yourself informed by regularly looking at our newsletters which are on this website.

If you do not already regularly attend Mass then after doing so for a few weeks, please introduce yourself to Fr David Smith and, if appropriate, you will be given a Baptism Application Form. Once the form is returned you will be given a date to attend for a baptism catechesis session.

Once that is completed then you will be offered dates from which you can choose the most suitable for your family. Please be understanding and respectful during this process. Apologies to the majority who would always be patient, understanding and respectful but lately we have had people who are not.

I look forward to baptising your child and welcoming them into the community.

Thank you, Fr. David Smith.
