Practicalities about Baptism


Anyone can be baptised, regardless of age.


Baptisms typically take place during a regular Sunday worship service. We advise you to contact the church office in advance to arrange the baptism and have a conversation with the parish priest.



Godparents must have been baptised themselves and have reached the age of confirmation. The names and addresses of the godparents need to be provided to the church office in a timely manner as they will be recorded in the church register. After the baptism, a baptismal certificate will be issued as an official document for the baptised individual.


To be baptised or have your child baptiaed, you should either reside or have resided in the community or have a special connection to the church, such as through a previous religious ceremony (baptism/confirmation). If you have any doubts or questions, please contact the church.
