Baptism by its very nature is never a private event, it is about becoming a member of a community. For this reason we do not facilitate 'private' baptisms. We do however limit the number of babies at each ceremony to a maximum of six, to avoid overcrowding.
In our parish we have a Baptismal Team who work with the priests to prepare families for the celebration of the Sacrament and who assist at the ceremony also. Their role is an important one since they represent the community to which your child will belomg.
They will be happy to advise you on any aspect of the ceremony.
You will meet some of the members at the preparatory meeting, and they also assist at the ceremony itself.
