Baptism

Baptisms are celebrated on any Sunday during the month and are usually celebrated at 12pm or 2pm but these are flexible times. If, in any one month, there are a number of children to be baptised, the parents will be invited to attend a course at our church. However, if this doesn’t take place, then Fr James will meet with the parents to discuss the importance of baptism and parental responsibilities.

How much does it cost?
