WHAT IS BAPTISM:
Baptism is the time when our original sin is being washed away, giving us new freedom to begin our life in and for Christ Jesus. That is when we become part of God’s Family.
This is why the work and support of both Parents and God Parents at this stage is very important.
At St Anne’s, we are always pleased to welcome all into the new life in Christ through Baptisms and other Sacraments.
Baptism at St Anne’s is usually on Sundays at 12.15pm after 11am Mass.
