Baptism is the first sacrament. It incorporates us into the Catholic Church and through this sacrament; we are ‘reborn’ as sons and daughters of God. Baptism is performed by immersion in or pouring of water. Parents who ask to have their children baptised accept the responsibility of rearing them in the practice of the faith as well as teach them to live in God’s commandments.
Baptisms are celebrated at St Bernardine’s Church, Regents Park - Sunday 10.30am (after 9am Mass) Baptisms are celebrated at St Catherine's Church, Jimboomba and Our Lady of the Assumption Church, Park Ridge by prior arrangement.
