Holy Baptism

 

To apply for the sacrament of Baptism as an adult, please see Journey of Faith.


To apply for the Sacrament of Baptism for your child in our parish, please would you fill in an application form which is available from the porch of the church, or from this link:


A3 Caterham Baptismal Application Form.pdf


Please read the notes carefully, and do not submit the form in any way other than by arranging an appointment to meet the parish priest and handing it in then.


The date for a baptism will be arranged at that meeting. Baptisms take place usually on Saturday or Sunday afternoons (either at 12 or at 3), and usually with one single family at a time.


If this is your first baby, you will be required to attend a preparation course; the dates are on the baptism form.


It is hoped soon to begin optional parenting classes for the parents of infants.
