Here at Holy Angels we have a Baptism team who help you to prepare for this sacrament. First we ask you to contact the parish office and complete a form that will be sent to you. A member of the Baptism team will then be in touch to take you through the programme of preparation right up to the Baptism.
Members visit families prior to the celebration, to befriend and explain about the ceremony, answering any questions or concerns. They also chat about parish life and groups, including local schools and nurseries.
Stressing the importance of the preparation of the parents and godparents reflects the roles and responsibility of the parish community in welcoming and supporting the parents and the new baby, a responsibility that will be shared in the years to come through a partnership with schools.
Baptisms are usually held on Sundays either during Mass or at a separate Liturgy.
