Is a sacrament of new life which leaves an indelible mark on the soul. It forgives us original sins inherited from our first parents and all the sins we may have committed before receiving the sacrament, it makes us children of God and members of God holy people and we become a dwelling place for the Holy Spirit. As St Paul says in Romans 6:4 when we went down into the water all our sins were drowned. And coming out of the water a new person with new life came out. Anyone who wishes to arrange for his/her infant (3years & under) baptism must fulfil the following:
Parents must obtain forms when the announcement is published in the parish newsletter.
Parents must attend one session of preparation before they can pick their preferred date.
Baptism is celebrated on Sunday either during Mass or at 1.30pm.
One of the parents must have been baptised in the catholic church and his/her own baptism certificate attached to the forms when returning them to the church. A copy of birth certificate (long version) of the child is also needed. God parents are required for baptism. You may have one or more than one. If you are getting only one he/she must be a practising catholic ; and if more than one at least one must be a practising catholic who must give the sponsor's form to his/her parish priest for signature.
