INFANT BAPTISM

So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. Galatians 3:26-27

Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit (vitae spiritualis ianua), and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission: "Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water in the word.".

- Catechism of the Catholic Church 1213

Jesus was baptized and taught his Apostles to do likewise. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons and daughters of God. We become members of the Body of Christ as we are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission. We can’t wait to welcome your child into the life of Christ and our Church through Baptism. To get started, please fill out the baptism inquiry form and our team will reach out to you.

ABOUT US

We are a Catholic Parish under the Bishop of Christchurch, run by the Brothers of St John.  Recently, in order to better help all discover the beauty, goodness and truth of Jesus Christ, our Bishop joined three parishes together to create this new Parish, temporarily called 'Christchurch West'.
