Congratulations on the birth of your baby! To bring new life into the world is a very special gift. We welcome your baby into our parish community.
Baptism is the first step in your child’s journey to God. Your own faith is essential for the steps which follow. You will be promising to bring up your child in the practice of the faith, knowing God as a loving Father. You are asking the parish family to help you with this. In baptism your baby becomes part of a wider family – the Church.
Think of the love that the Father has lavished on us
By letting us be called God’s children;
And that is what we are.
My dear people we are already the children of God
But what we are to be in the future has not yet been revealed;
all that we know is that when it is revealed we shall be like him
because we shall see him as he really is. 1 John 3:1-2
