OLDER CHILDREN'S BAPTISM 2022

Kia ora,
Early in term four we will begin preparations for Baptism for children who are seven years old and over.
The programme will consist of an information session for parents, where we will go over what the programme entails, and the expectations and commitment required from families.

The date for this information session will be:
Sunday 6th November 4pm in St Joseph’s Church Hall.
Children are welcome to come along to Shine, our junior youth group, which runs at this time.

If, after this first session, you decide that your family is ready to commit to this programme the next three sessions are as follows:
Sunday 13th November 4pm
Sunday 20th November 4pm
Sunday 27th November 4pm
These sessions are for parents and children. After these sessions we will then all go as a whole group to 5.30pm Mass at St Joseph’s Church.

Then the celebration - where all of the children will celebrate their Baptism will be held on:
Sunday 4th December.

Please get in touch via email before October 31st to register your interest in attending the information session on 6th November.
If you have any further questions please email me at [email protected]
