At St Catherine of Siena Parish, parents MUST attend the Baptism Preparation Meeting before the baptism. If possible, please arrange for someone to look after the children for the Baptism Preparation Meeting.
We encourage those who live outside our parish boundaries, to have their child baptised in their own parish community. Although non-parishioners can still be baptised at St Catherine of Siena Parish, we require them to talk to our parish priest first before getting an enrolment form.
Baptisms are usually celebrated on the first and last SATURDAY of each month. However, this pattern usually changes at Christmas, New Year, Easter and some other times of the year.
For more information, please call the Parish office at 8361 9822, Monday to Friday during office hours.

GODPARENTS need to be:
- Practising Catholics,
- At least 16 years of age, and
- Have received the Sacrament of Confirmation.
They may NOT be the parents of the child. One godparent is sufficient. Because godparents speak and act on behalf of the Catholic community, a baptised Christian from another denomination cannot be a godparent.
