Baptisms

If you live in the St Benedict’s Parish and would like to apply for your child to be baptised, please attend Mass and speak to Fr Henry afterwards.  He will want to meet you to get to know you, talk about the sacrament of baptism, and make sure you are familiar with the Baptism liturgy.  

An important point to bear in mind is that you will need at least one confirmed Catholic godparent (ideally two) who attends Mass regularly.  If you do not live or worship regularly in our Parish but would like to apply for baptism at the church of St Benedict’s, you will first need to talk to the Parish Priest in the area where you live so that he can grant permission for the baptism to take place in this Parish.

If you are an adult who has not been baptised and are interested in learning more about the Catholic faith, please speak to Fr Henry after Mass.
