Should you wish to have your child Baptised as St Mary’s please contact Fr Ed Gornall on 01946 692083 or e-mail before making any other arrangements in order to avoid disappointment if he isn’t available.

If you do not live in St Mary’s parish then you will need to seek permission from the Parish Priest where you live.

When choosing Godparents please bear the following in mind:

• At least one Godparent must be a practising Catholic
• Godparents must be Baptised Christians – if not, they can only be witnesses
• A maximum of four people can be Godparents – any others will be witnesses
