Congratulations on the birth of your child. The birth of a child is a joyful and happy occasion. Our Parish team wish to thank you for requesting to have your child baptised into the Christian Faith in our Church of St Clare’s / Holy Cross. Choosing to raise your child in the Christian Faith can be both a challenging and rewarding experience.
Baptism is not an end in itself, in fact it is the first step on a long journey of faith. In order to help you our Parish are offering a Baptism Preparation Evening to all parents seeking Baptism for their Child. This meeting allows parents to meet with other parents as well as members of the parish community. It is an opportunity to prepare for this sacrament of welcome as well as explore and discuss its importance.
The meeting will take place every second month in our Parish Centre from 7:00pm – 8:30pm. Parents are requested to attend as we are anxious to assist you in any way we can at this special time. (Godparents are also welcome to attend)
The next meeting will take place on the 23rd of November at 7:00pm. Parents presenting their children for Baptism in December or January are asked to attend this meeting.
