Home Ministries Sacraments Baptism Baptism of Children

Baptism of Children

Our Lady Help of Christians community is delighted to welcome new members into our Catholic faith by Baptism. The Parish is here to support families in their faith journeys.

An initial Baptism meeting is required with our Parish Priest, Father Paul Chackanikunnel (usually held on Saturday mornings).  At this meeting, Father Paul will answer any questions about baptism and assist families in connecting to our church community.  Also at this meeting, Father Paul will set the date of baptism and attendance at a Baptismal Preparation session and a Rite of Reception (Naming Ceremony) during Mass in the weeks prior to the Baptism.

For further information on baptism at the Parish Of Our Lady Help of Christians, please see our Policies and Practice document.

Please contact the Parish Office (Ph: 3268 3040) to arrange a meeting with Fr Paul and we look forward to assisting you with the Baptism.
