Baptism Preparation of Children 7+ yrs

Baptism for School age Children

Children aged seven years and older who are not yet baptised are invited to prepare to receive the Sacrament of Baptism. The introductory preparation course runs for three Sundays starting in August. Parents are asked to be with their child at these times.

When the children complete the introductory Baptism course they are then able to join the Sacramental Programme (preparation for Confirmation and First Communion) which begins in September.

Children about seven years and older are generally considered able to understand, with the help of their families, the meaning of these Sacraments through which they enter into “full communion” with other members of the Church family as brothers and sisters of Christ Jesus. They are invited to receive the graces and blessings of Baptism, Confirmation and First Holy Communion (the three Sacraments of Initiation) at about the same time.

Please contact the Parish Office for further information and to register. Ph:09 437 7902
