Sacraments

** Sacraments and Sacramental Program are suspended for the time being. **

We are working hard on how to recommence celebrating baptisms in a safe and spiritual way.
We have quite a few rules & guidelines to abide by, which can make things a little challenging.
If you have made an initial baptism request and you are yet to hear back from the Parish office, you will be contacted very soon.
We kindly ask for your patience and understanding.

 

Baptisms

Our Parish celebrates the Sacrament of Baptism on the 3rd Sunday of each month at 12:30pm at Holy Trinity Church, Queenscliff.

Bookings are essentials via the Parish office.

Families are required to attend baptism preparation. The baptism preparation must be done prior to the baptism. The baptism preparation is done on a Saturday at 11:00am at the Presbytery/Parish Office. The session goes for approximately an hour.

At least one Godparent must be Catholic and have had their Sacraments.

Please see below for additional information.
