Life Events – Baptism, Marriage, Funerals & Bookings

Baptism

BAPTISM is an entry into the Church Family and the Body of Christ and is an affirmation of faith and intention of living a Christian life.

The parents and Godparents make a commitment before God to bring the young child/person up in a Christian environment and in  a loving home.

At least one parent or guardian will affirm Baptism for an infant.

The greatest gifts you can give a child is your love and time, and teach the child to pray, particularly –

The Lord’s Prayer

Bedtime prayers

Meal time thanks and prayer

Thank the heavenly Father regularly for the gift of your child – God’s special gift.

Baptism applications forms available from the office BAPTISM FORMS 2015
