Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit (vitae spiritualis ianua), and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission: “Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water in the word. (CC1213)We are happy to welcome a new member of your family into the Catholic Church here at St Mary’s Leederville. In our Parish we celebrate Baptisms every Sunday at 11.45 am. Parents are asked to meet with Parish Priest who will discuss baptism with these families (Please ring the parish office to get an appointment to discuss with the Parish Priest).
