Baptisms

Whether you’re exploring the possibility of a baptism or whether you’ve already decided, we will be delighted to hear from you to talk about it. You don't need to be a regular at St Matthew's to be baptised here.

If you want to read more about what Baptism is, click here.

At St Matthew's we celebrate Baptisms during the main Sunday Mass, during most of the year. If you have a particular date in mind for the Baptism we will try to accommodate, but please, let us know at least 3 months in advance.

We will have 2 one-hour-long sessions to prepare for Baptism before the date. It is important that both parents and the godparents come to the preparation sessions. If you would like to know more about godparents (their roles and who qualifies to be a godparent), please click here.

Since it is a very great day for your family and your child, you might be thinking on celebrating afterwards. If you don't want to go far, our Hall is available for hire and it is inexpensive. Find out more by clicking here.

When you are ready,  give us a call to organise a first meeting. If you want, you can download, print and fill in the application form before the meeting, or we will provide you one on the first meeting.
