If you wish to have your child baptised, you must contact the Parish Office on 0151 489 3085 and you will be booked into a preparation meeting.

Please see below information for Baptisms:

How do I book a date for my child's baptism?

You must first attend a baptism preparation meeting. You should do this by calling the parish office during office hours on 0151 489 3085. 
At this meeting you will be given all the information about what will happen on your child's baptism day, a form to fill and how to book your date. Until you have attended this meeting, you will not be able to book a date. 

Will there be other families at my child's baptism?

Yes. We baptise a maximum of 3 children at each service, depending on demand for the date.

Do godparents need to be Catholic?

At least one of the godparents needs to be baptised Catholic and all need to be 16 years or older.

How many godparents can we have? 

Usually people have 2: a godmother and a godfather. Some people like to have 2 of each. We can only name a maximum of 4 godparents on the baptism certificate. 

I cannot find my child's baptism certificate, what should I do? 

We do not routinely give out Baptism certificates at the Baptism, rather these are printed on request. Please contact the parish office on the above number with your child's name at the time of baptism, their date of birth, the date of their baptism and, if they were baptised before 2020, the name of the church. 

If you need any further information, please use our contact form.
