The Parish Christening Team

***We are now able to offer Baptism, however there are strict rules that need to be adhered to due to Covid 19 (for example a maximum 30 guests). Please contact Eleanor if you would like your child baptised and we can discuss the current process. **

The Christening Team is here to welcome and support parents bringing their child for Baptism. We visit families in their homes to talk through what is involved in the Baptism preparation programme and what is needed for Baptism.

Our Baptism preparation course, which both parents should attend, consists of three 45 minute sessions before the Baptism and one afterwards where certificates are presented. The sessions usually take place in St Teresa’s meeting room where we meet with a cup of tea or coffee after the 10am Sunday morning Mass and the first session includes a Parish welcome for the family during Mass.

For more information or to apply to join a preparation course, please contact the parish administrator or download an application form by clicking the link below. Completed applications are welcome at the Parish Office which is located in the Presbytery, at the side of our Church.

We, the Christening Team, hope that we can help provide a memorable and happy occasion on this very important first step in the Journey of Faith for your child and that this contact with St Teresa’s community will be the beginning of your families’ involvement with our church and the different groups which are available to help welcome parishioners.

We look forward to meeting you and your family.

Baptisms are by appointment only to be arranged with the Baptism team.

If you require a form to be sent out to you please contact Eleanor Williams on 01695-622001 Mon, Tue, Wed, Fri 9-12.
