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

Second course of 2024

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 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 Catholic Church on two Sunday afternoons, each time from 3.30pm until 5pm. Part One is on Sunday 7th July, and Part Two is on Sunday 21st July, 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 or early next year, and who might not see this poster; even if they have already made contact with Fr Martin.

The next course will offered in the autumn (3rd & 17th November), God willing.
