BAPTISM AT THE PARISH: Baptisms are celebrated on the second and fourth Sundays of the month at 11 am. The Sacrament is not celebrated during Lent as the parish prepares for the Easter Season. We consider it a great honour to welcome your child into the Catholic Church with you and your family in the Holy Family Parish, Runaway Bay.
GODPARENTS: It is the requirement that at least one parent is a fully initiated Catholic, and at least one Godparent is a fully initiated Catholic. A copy of the Parent’s and Godparent’s Baptism certificate is required. Please also provide a copy of the child’s birth certificate.
BAPTISM PREPARATION: Parents are required to attend a Preparation session prior to the Baptism celebration. The date of the session is confirmed at your appointment with the Baptism coordinator.
APPOINTMENT: Contact the Parish Office on 07 5537 4320 Ext. 2 to arrange an appointment with the Baptism coordinator.
