Child being baptisedA child who is baptised into the Catholic Church needs to have at least one Godparent who is an adult baptised Catholic. Godparents promise to support parents to help raise the child in the practice of the faith. You will also need a candle and a white garment for the ceremony - symbols of faith and dignity.

The sacrament of Baptism is celebrated at set times in St Ignatius' Church.  There will be no private baptisms.  Baptisms at St James' Church are by request only.

To prepare for the Sacrament of Baptism, parents and Godparents are required to attend one preparation session.  For dates of preparation sessions and baptisms, please download our schedules below.

Adults wishing to be baptised into the Catholic Church are invited to get in touch with the parish office.
