"Baptism is the foundational sacrament and the pre-requisite for all other sacraments. It unites us with Jesus Christ, incorporates us into His redemptive death on the Cross, thereby freeing us from the power of Original Sin and all personal sins, and causes us to rise with him to a life without end." - YOUCAT #194

Parents who wish to have their child baptised must attend the infant baptism preparation briefing together with the child’s godparents. This session is usually held on the first Sunday of each month, with the exception of Easter, when it is held a week before the Easter Sunday baptism.
Both the infant baptism preparation session and the Rite of Baptism start at 3 pm.
