The Baptism Preparation Team at St. Luke’s Parish is a group of parishioners who feel blessed to be able to assist parents in the initiation of their child into the Catholic Faith. We meet on the first Saturday of the month at 10 am in the Parish Centre together with the parents and children. The team works closely together to ensure the process runs seamlessly for both the families and Father. There are a number of different roles undertaken by team members in conjunction with the Parish Office. The main administrative role involves the running of the Baptism Preparation Class. On this Saturday morning, the information from the forms is checked with the families to ensure that the Baptism Certificate given to the families is correct. The checked spreadsheet is then forwarded to the Parish Office so they are aware of the upcoming Baptisms.
Parents and godparents are invited to attend a Preparation Classes which aims at deepening their appreciation and understanding of the Sacrament of Baptism. A team member prepares Baptism Information Packs which are given to the families on this Saturday. Team members are also present at the Presentation Mass (usually every Sunday at 9am) where the families presents the child to the parish and they are welcome by the parish community. On the day of the Baptism, if family required, a member of the team will be present in order to guide the families through the ceremony.
If you are interested in becoming a member of the team, please contact us via the Parish Office or call (02) 9773 9065.
