Those wishing to have their child baptised should please contact the parish office and seek an appointment with the parish priest.
Normally baptisms take place in the parish where a family is resident.
You may not live in St. Mary's parish but have a good reason for wanting to have your child baptised here. In such cases your own parish priest will need to give permission for the baptism to take place at St. Mary's.
