The Sacrament of Baptism

If you want to have your child baptised, you need to register him or her for the baptism. This can be done each Monday evening between 5.30pm and 7.30pm in the Parish Offices in the presbytery of St Augustine’s church (Langcliffe Drive, Heelands, MK13 7PL).

You also need to attend a baptism course, which is held on the first Monday of every month in St. Augustine's. Here you will not only find out what you need to know about the baptism of your child, but you also have the opportunity to meet parents who are in the same situation as you. It is important that, whenever possible, both parents come to the course.

Your child will then be welcomed by the church community on the 2nd Sunday of the month at Mass in St Bede's church. The baptism itself normally takes place on the 3rd or 4th Sunday at St Bede's.
