Why do we baptise babies?

  • Baptism is a chance for all the family to get together, celebrate and thank God for the new life which he has given. 

  • It is a time when we remember that as well as being a member of a human family your baby is a part of God’s family too, the family of the Church. 

  • It is a time when your child is given their special Christian name. 

  • It is sacrament, that means an outward and visible sign of God's love
