Rite of Baptism

The Rite of Baptism, the first of the seven sacraments, is steeped in the history, traditions, and rituals of the Old Liberal Catholic church.  It is intended to cleanse away original sin and symbolises a rebirth in Christ, recalling his baptism by John the Baptist.  The ceremony initiates a child (or adult) into the Old Catholic faith and membership into the church, the holy body of the people of Christ.

Baptism is usually carried out during a Sunday All Age Mass. 

Contact your local parish Priest for more information or complete the Baptism Request Form.
