TIMES: At St Mary's Church, Bungendore, baptisms are usually held on the 2nd Sunday of the month at 10:00 am. Please speak to Deacon John or the office if this is not a suitable time for your family.
MAKING A BOOKING FOR A
BAPTISM:- You can phone the Bungendore parish office on
6238 1247 between 11am and 5pm on Wednesdays. The "Request for Baptism" form can also be downloaded from this page, completed and emailed to St Mary’s Parish firstname.lastname@example.org.
BAPTISM PREPARATION SESSION: At St Mary’s , Baptism preparation takes place in an informal conversation with either Fr Peter or Deacon John. The parish asks that you participate in a preparation session if this your first child or you have not previously participated in such a session for any other children. When you contact the office to organise a date for the baptism we will help you to arrange a suitable time for this preparation to happen.
PRESENTATION MASS: You will also be asked to attend a Presentation Mass. This is where you and your child will be welcomed to our parish community. If possible, the godparents are invited to attend this Mass to be part of this service. From Sunday 7th January our weekend Mass is at 8:30am on Saturdays.
