Baptism

Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian Life, the gateway to the life in the Spirit and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as children of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission: “Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water in the word.” Catechism of the Catholic Church, #1213

The Sacrament of Baptism is normally celebrated in the Parish Church of the parish in which the person lives. Please contact your local Parish Office for further inquiries. Contact details for all our parishes can be found under the Find a Parish section of our website
