Baptism is often called the gateway to the Sacraments because if you have not received baptism you cannot receive any of the other Sacraments. To ‘baptise’ means to immerse so therefore when someone is baptised they are immersed into the death of Christ and rises with Him as a new person.
Baptisms can be arranged at different times. If you would like your child to be baptised please speak to Father Bede or ring him on 01458 832203. Fr Bede will be able to give you a baptismal application form which must be returned to him before the baptism date booked.
