Congratulations & Welcome!
“In the waters of the Jordan
You revealed with signs and wonders a new Baptism,
so that through the voice that came down from heaven
we might come to believe in your Word dwelling among us.”
Preface from the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord
The Sacrament of Baptism is celebrated in our parish on Sundays.
We invite couples to register for the pre-baptismal course by calling to the parish office with the candidate’s birth certificate. The pre-baptismal meeting is held on Wednesday nights for registered participants in St Anne’s Resource Centre. Parking for parents and godparents is available in St Anne’s Garden (accessed via Trimgate Street).
In the case of adults or children under seven years of age who wish to be enrolled in the pre-baptism catechesis, we invite you to make contact with one of the parish clergy after any Sunday Mass
Parents and godparents may apply to have their children baptised following attendance at a Wednesday pre-baptismal meetings.
In the days, months and years after baptism, the cousins, uncles, aunts and grandparents are invited to assist the parents and godchildren in helping the newly baptised to grow in faith.
This is a valuable opportunity for Confirmation candidates to help their younger siblings to learn their prayers – especially the Sign of the Cross and the Lord’s Prayer.
