“A Sacrament is "an outward sign instituted by Christ to give grace."
“Christ instituted the sacraments of the new law. There are seven: Baptism, Confirmation
(or Chrismation), the Eucharist, Penance, the Anointing of the Sick, Holy Orders
and Matrimony. The seven sacraments touch all the stages and all the important moments
of Christian life:1 they give birth and increase, healing and mission to the Christian's
life of faith.” CCC 1210
All our Baptisms are by appointment.
Usually the family makes contact with one of the priests to arrange a suitable time
in any one of the three Churches.
A Parish Form is available, to be completed before the Baptism takes place.

Baptisms in the Church will take place on the first and third Saturday of each month
