Preparing for a child’s baptism: a course for parents

2022 course

The church wants parents to take their child’s baptism seriously, and to approach the day of their child’s baptism fully aware of the commitment they will be undertaking to bring up their child in the practice of the Christian faith. 

The next course for people hoping to have a baby or infant baptised in a Glossop parish will take place at St Mary Crowned on two Sunday afternoons, each time from 4pm until 5.30pm. Part One is on Sunday 24th April, and Part Two is on Sunday 8th May, God willing. 

The courses also help parents enjoy the day of their child’s baptism more fully, because they know what to expect and have had a chance to reflect on the meaning behind the ceremonies of baptism. 

Please pray for children soon to be baptised in our parishes, and for their parents.

Please bring this information to the attention of anyone whom you think might be wishing to have a baby or infant baptised this year, and who might not see this page; even if they have already made contact with Fr Martin.
