Baptisms

BAPTISM at the SACRED HEART

If a family is already an established member of our Sunday worshipping community, baptisms are usually celebrated within the context of Sunday Mass.

Otherwise, they are usually celebrated on a Saturday lunchtime.

If a family doesn’t normally attend Mass, they should do so for a period prior to the celebration of baptism

Please note that, during the celebration of Baptism, we expect respect for God and His house.  Therefore, there must be no chewing of gum and guests must dress and behave respectfullyWe reserve the right to postpone the Baptism if we feel that this respect is not being shown.

The stipend for a Baptism is currently £40.00 to defray costs.
