Baptisms

Details of our next Baptism Courses below:

We are delighted that you are thinking of having your child baptised. Please phone or email the Parish Office to arrange a date for the baptism with Fr Paul and to obtain the baptism application form.

At Our Lady we prepare the parents and Godparents over four sessions. You will be invited to attend the Sunday 10:30 Mass followed by an hour’s formation session with other families seeking baptism. The sessions are held at St Mary’s Primary school.

The focus of this baptismal resource is to help parents to have a real encounter with Christ and deepen within them what it means to belong to the body of Christ, the Church.  We believe that through this encounter the parents/Godparents will be more able to be the first and best teachers of their children in the ways of faiths (Extract from Baptism for Life, Liverpool Diocese).

The course is run by catechists who will journey with you during this formation period. Please register your attendance via the parish office.
