Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit and the door which gives access to the other Sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and return as children of God. We become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in the mission. Baptism is a Sacrament of regeneration through water and the Word. 


If you wish for your child to be Baptised at either of our churches here in Taunton then please contact Mgr. Bernard or Fr David. You can also simply download the application form and return it to us via email, or drop it in at the Rectory and we will contact you by email or by telephone.
