The Baptism Team
Baptism is a beautiful Sacrament. However, some of its beauty and joy can be missed if it is a rushed affair with little preparation put into it. Our Parish Baptism Team are there to help parents prepare for their child’s Baptism.
This ministry is all about welcoming people and making them feel at home, at home in the Church. It is about smiles, hospitality and friendship. The birth of a baby is a time of great happiness. Soon after the birth, parents make a decision about Baptism, where their child will be welcomed into the Christian Community.
The Baptism Team represents the Christian Community that is the Parish, at the Baptism. They help parents and godparents to prepare for the task they have undertaken when asking for Baptism. To help them prepare for and fulfil their Baptismal role, parents are invited to attend a Baptism preparation meeting with the team. The Baptism preparation meeting provides both the parents and godparents with a greater understanding of the Sacrament of Baptism, as well as ensuring that, the ceremony of Baptism is a more meaningful celebration for all concerned.
New members always welcome.
