Infant Baptism

Congratulations on your new baby, or if you are pregnant and planning ahead, we look forward with you to the great event!

Please contact the Parish Priest as soon as possible about arranging an infant Baptism at St Andrews.  Infant baptism can be celebrated during either one of the Parish Sunday Masses (8.30am or 10.30am) or on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon.

The Parish Priest will arrange a meeting with the parents of the child as soon as possible, so that you may both be helped with the preparation for this Sacrament.

You should start thinking now about choosing two suitable godparents for your child.  Ideally, Godparents should be firm believers in their own Catholic faith, as their role is to support the newly baptised on the way of Christian life.
