About Infant Baptism

Our parish celebrates the sacrament of Infant Baptism on the 2nd Sunday of every month at the 11.30am Mass. 

Prior to that, parents and Godparents are required to attend a compulsory Infant Baptism Preparation Session. This preparation is essential as through the Sacrament of Baptism, a child becomes a part of God’s family.

In fact, the aim of the Infant Baptism Team is to start engaging parents at the stage of pre-birth through a series of pre-birth talks starting from the second trimester through to the third and final stages of pregnancy. The pre-birth talks will include topics such as “Parent’s Role in the Faith Formation of The Child”; “Considerations When Selecting a Name for Your Child; “How to Choose your Child’s Godparents”.
