Preparing your child for Baptism is an important step and here at Saint Charles Borromeo you will be invited to attend a Baptism course that supports you with this important decision. These days the Archdiocese recommends something more than a brief chat with the priest.
These courses are held several times during the year and to find out more those who have a child whom they would like to have baptised as well as expectant parents should contact Fr Stewart to find out more about the preparation requirements and dates. The dates can also be found on the website in the newsletter section.The course is over three weeks with one meeting a week. The idea is to gather a number of parents together for a meeting starting with refreshments, followed by a power-point presentation and a discussion. It ends with a short prayer service echoing some of the baptismal liturgy. Dates for Baptisms are arranged with the individual parents.
