At St. Mary’s we ask that parents who wish to have their child baptised attend a two-part Preparation Course.


During the Course we ask questions such as “Why do we Baptise”, and “What is Baptism?”. We also have discussions and advice from cathechists who have had their own children baptised.


During the second session we look at the Rite of Baptism, finishing with going through the Baptism Service in the church itself.


To attend the Baptism Preparation Course you will need to book yourself on to it by telephoning the Priory Office between 9.00am and 4.00pm.


The dates and times of the Baptism Preparation Courses are always highlighted in the Weekly Newsletter, along with dates and times of actual Baptisms.

The Baptism Preparation Course is for parents.
