Frequently Asked Questions
Do both parents/partners need to be Catholic?
At least one parent/partner must be Catholic in order to have a child baptised.
What is the role of a Godparent?
The Godparent’s role is to be a witness to their faith for the child and to pray for them. Godparents support the parents to raise the child in the faith and help them to develop a relationship with God.
I have an unusual circumstance and/or my question is not covered here.
If you believe you have an unusual circumstance that you need to discuss, or you have an enquiry these answers don’t address, please call the parish office on Monday – Saturday, between 9 am – 5 pm. Or click the button below to send us messge.
This is my first child to be baptised, what do I need to do?
If this is your first child to be baptised, fill in the form below and we will be in contact with you. The usual procedure is that you will meet the priest before the baptism and you will need to attend one baptism preparation class.
What should I consider when choosing a Godparent?
When considering who to ask to be your child’s Godparent, please consider that:
* All Godparents need to have received all their Catholic sacraments. That is, they must be baptised, have received their First Eucharist and be confirmed Catholic.
* Godparents must be over the age of 16 and they cannot be the parent of the child being baptised.
