Baptism

 

  • One of the God parents must be a baptised catholic.

  • Your family must live within the parish boundary to have their child/children baptised at St Agnes.

  • If your family does not live within the parish boundaries of St Agnes but there is a special reason that you want your child/children baptised at St Agnes – i.e. that you were baptised or married at St Agnes or your extended family has ties to St Agnes – then you will need to obtain a letter of permission from your parish priest.

  • To arrange a baptism it is necessary to contact our Parish Office to obtain the Baptismal Registration Form and additional reading material.  Once the Registration Form is returned to the Parish Office, we will confirm the date of Baptism and Preparation of Baptism Evening.

  • Baptisms are held Saturdays during the 6 pm Mass. Please direct all enquiries for the Sacrament of Baptism to the Office: 9583 6161

  • Baptisms are carried out, after the completion of the Baptismal Preparation Evening by parents, which are held by appointment.

  • All baptisms are entered in the parish baptismal register.

  • We have a registration fee of $30.00 and a Baptism Offering of $70.00 per child for Baptisms.

What does the Church Teach? Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit (vitae spiritualis ianua), and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as children of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission: “Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water in the word.” This sacrament is called Baptism, after the central rite by which it is carried out: to baptize (Greek baptizein) means to “plunge” or “immerse”; the “plunge” into the water symbolizes the catechumen’s burial into Christ’s death, from which he rises up by resurrection with him, as “a new creature.”
