Sacrament of Baptism

The Sacrament of Baptism begins our life of faith and welcomes us into God's family, the Church, and so we wish to bring our children to this great gift soon after they are born. They are welcomed into God's family through the pouring of water and gift of the Holy Spirit. This is the beginning of a loving and fruitful relationship and we all spend the rest of our lives trying to live up to being a baptised Catholic. So as we come to celebrate this gift it is important that parents take time to do some preparation so to understand better the commitment and responsibility they are taking on when they ask to have a child baptised.

St Edmund's Parish offers preparation for parents on the 4th Wednesday of the month. Each programme is at 18.00 for about 1 hour. Parents are asked to attend on of these sessions. We have a dedicated team of leaders to help you in this preparation. Once the preparation is complete we are happy to book a date with you for the baptism.

Please contact the parish office to book for baptism preparation.
