Baptism is a sacred sacrament that marks the beginning of a lifelong journey of faith. At St. Austin, we joyfully welcome individuals of all ages into the embrace of God’s love through the sacrament of baptism.

What is Baptism? Baptism is a momentous occasion where individuals are initiated into the Christian faith. It is a celebration of God’s grace and a commitment to living a life in accordance with Christ’s teachings.

If you wish to apply for a baptism, come to mass and speak to one of the Parish Team and they will give you a baptism form.

First Holy Communion

First Holy Communion is a cherished milestone in a Catholic’s journey, typically occurring around the age of seven or eight. It’s a pivotal moment when children receive the body and blood of Christ for the first time, deepening their connection to the Church. Through preparation and education, they learn about the significance of the Eucharist, understanding its spiritual importance and the teachings of Jesus. First Communion marks a significant step in their faith, inviting them to partake in this sacred sacrament and fostering a lifelong relationship with God through the act of receiving the Eucharist.

An initial invitation will be sent out via the school and forms can be collected from the Church.
