We are always happy to welcome new Church members, whether children or adults, with the sacrament of baptism.  We normally baptise at the 11:00 Mass on the third Sunday of a month. We ask you to do two things; Firstly Please check that you live in our parish.  You should make your request for baptism to the parish in which you live.  You can check which parish you live in by putting your postcode into this web site. (

Secondly We ask you to come along to the Parish Mass at 09.30am on Sunday. 

Our baptism policy (please read carefully):-

St Mary’s warmly welcomes children and adults for the sacrament of baptism, which makes a person a member of Christ’s Church.  We ask those seeking baptism to come to church for at least  two Sundays before requesting a baptism.  A baptism properly takes place at the Sunday 09:30 Mass because it is the whole church that welcomes each new member, child or adult.  In the case of a child we expect parents to continue to bring children to church after baptism so they attend Sunday School and grow up in the Christian faith.
