Dear Parents    water_flow

Congratulations on the birth of your child, and thank you for expressing the desire

to have your child welcomed into God’s family through baptism.


If you are registered as a parishioner at St Joseph’s, or if you reside within the Subiaco parish,

then you are invited to arrange for one of our Sunday mornings baptisms.

These are celebrated after the morning Mass and usually they take approximately 25 minutes.

You need to ring the parish and arrange for a conversation with our baptism coordinator – Bart Welten.

He is in the office on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and will arrange to forward a baptism application

form to you.

You will also need to attend an information meeting.

These are held in the church on the first Tuesday of the month in which your child is to be baptised.

If you are not registered as a parishioner and live outside our parish,

you are welcome to arrange a baptism here with a visiting priest or deacon known to you and your family,

at a time other than Sunday morning.

You will need an application form from us, and

you will need to take it to the parish priest of the place where you live, to get his signature.
