Congratulations on the birth of your child. Thank you for expressing your desire to have your child welcomed into God’s family through Baptism. The day of a child’s Baptism is a very important day in their life, because through Baptism we are incorporated into the God’s Church and are reborn as sons and daughters of God.
At St. Mary’s Cathedral, the usual times for the celebration of Baptism are on Saturdays between 9am and 3pm and on Sundays at 12:15pm, and at 3pm. Midweek Baptism times may also be available.
If you are interested in having your child baptised at St. Mary’s Cathedral, we invite you to please contact the Cathedral parish office using the enquiry form below. One of our parish secretaries will happily contact you to have a conversation with you about your hopes for your child’s Baptism, and share with you some of the hopes and expectations of the Church. They will forward an application form to you, covering all the things that you and we need to know. They will also be able to work through our parish calendar with you to find a suitable date and time for the Baptism.
