Baptism
Parents should contact Fr. Vincent.

For anyone who wishes to become a Roman Catholic who is either not baptised or was baptised in another christian denomination, we have a programme in the parish to give people the opportunity to learn about the Catholic faith and to join the Church. This programme, called the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA), starts in autumn and runs till May. If you are interested then please contact Fr. Vincent.
