Preparing for Sacraments


On designated Sundays during the year, the Sacrament of Baptism can be celebrated for the children of families who live within the Parish.

The Baptism program involves meeting with Fr Michael at an early date well before the ceremony. Preparation includes a meeting of parents, over a meal in St Ambrose's Community Centre, to view and discuss a video on Baptism. And there is material to consider for preparing the ceremony. Baptisms of children are normally conducted at 12.00noon at St Ambrose's or at 12.30pm at Our Lady's on the designated Sundays, or as part of the Sunday Mass.

Adult Baptism is also available through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults.
