Let the little children come to me and do not turn them away, for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs.
It is through Baptism that we begin our journey of Initiation, we are cleansed of Original Sin and receive sanctifying grace, the life of God within our souls. That grace prepares us for the reception of the other sacraments and helps us to live our lives as Christians.
In baptism, we are implanted in the paschal mystery of Christ; we die with him, are buried with him, and we rise with him.
Parents who are considering the sacrament of Baptism, should register to join the Baptismal programme. Please contact the Parish by email or telephone 0208 977 2986 to register for a Baptismal course, which occurs only four times a year. This is best undertaken before your baby is born.
