Gender of Child to be Baptised:  *
In relation to the person to be baptised, please select one of the following options. *
I understand that the family provides a suitable baptismal candle (or the godparents or relatives design or purchase one for them), which they will purchase either from a Christian store or various online sellers and bring along on the day of the Baptism. I also understand that we are encouraged to bring along a baptismal scarf that will be placed over the child after the pouring of water to show that this child has been clothed in Christ and his life. *

DETAILS OF GODPARENT(S). PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU NEED AT LEAST ONE GODPARENT, BUT YOU ARE WELCOME TO HAVE TWO OR MORE. ONE MUST BE CATHOLIC. THE OTHERS SHOULD BE CHRISTIAN. According to Church Law, the Godparent must be at least sixteen years old and have received the sacrament of confirmation and First Holy Communion. Certainly at least one Godparent must fulfil these requirements, but preferably all do. If you have any questions about this, please feel free to contact the Parish Office

I understand that before my child's baptism can be confirmed, I will need to provide all the necessary paperwork and certificates required and, if I have not had a previous child baptised , I will need to attend a Baptismal Parents night (usually the second Wednesday night of the Month from January to November inclusive). All bookings for baptism must attend a parents session, even if you have had a child baptised before. (attendance is not required during covid restrictions. we will let you know what you need) *
I assure the parish that, as the child's legal parent or guardian, I know of no legal reason why this child should not be baptised and I take full responsibility for the authority to have this child baptised.  *

BAPTISM FEE: Baptism: $100.00 to cover the cost of administration. (If Baptising two Children fee is $180). Please select your preferred payment. *
