The Sacrament of Baptism

The Sacrament of Baptism is the first sacrament of initiation and is the way out of the kingdom of death into life. It is the gateway to the Church, and the beginning of a lasting communion with God.

In Baptism we become members of the Body of Christ, the Church. We become sisters and brothers of our Lord, and children of God. We are freed from sin, saved from the darkness of death, and destined from then on for a life forever with God.

If you would like to have your child baptised at the Cathedral, please speak to Fr Mark or Fr Michael after any of the Weekend Masses or contact the Parish Office on 01604 714556 /

For Adults who wish to be baptised into the Catholic Church, there is an RCIA programme which begins in the Autumn. Dates for this Programme will be available in August. Please contact one of the Priests if you are interested.
