The Sacrament of Baptism

“And now what are you waiting for? Get up, be baptised and wash your sins away, calling on his name.”

Acts 22:16

Through Baptism, we become cherished Children of God.   Baptism wipes away all our sin and infuses us with the divine life. For that reason, all of us enter the Church through Baptism.

If you are thinking of having your baby or child baptised at St Marie’s, the next Baptism Preparation Programme will be held online on Saturday 8th May.

To register, you will need to fill out a registration form. Please e-mail office@stmariecathedral.org for a form. Alternatively, you can pick one up in the Cathedral after Mass from one of the stewards or the Priest, or from the Cathedral office.

Pleas return the form to the Cathedral office either physically or via e-mail.

The Baptism Preparation Programme provides an opportunity for parents to gain a better understanding of the sacrament of baptism.

If you are an adult wishing to be baptised please take a look at our ‘Journey in Faith’ programme.

Due to the current Coronavirus pandemic, if you are thinking of arranging a Baptism, please bear in mind the current limit on the number of people who can be present.

Please contact Cathedral House via email to express your interest in either programme:  office@stmariecathedral.org
