Your desire for Baptism is part of the journey you make with your child in the great unfolding of life. Our Catholic Community at Henley Beach is keenly aware of the joys and struggles parents face in today’s world, and wishes to offer you support and encouragement.

Baptism Dates & Days

Baptisms are normally held in our parish on the 2nd & 4th Sundays of each Month at an 11am service.

Baptisms are to be celebrated as part of the parish community, so you may be sharing this time with up to four families at the same time.

The ceremony will usually take no longer than 60 minutes if the session is fully booked.


You are expected to attend a Preparation Evening with the other families being Baptised the same month and this is usually at the beginning of your baptism month.

You are also expected to present your child for a “Rite of Welcome” so they may be welcomed into the parish Community. This is usually held at the 9.30am Mass on the 1st Sunday of each month.

Making a Booking

If you wish to book a Baptism and are Catholic, living in our Parish area, we ask that you phone the Parish Office (8356 8888), during office hours (9.30-4pm Mon – Fri), so that all the required information can be obtained. We recommend that you book well in advance, as dates book out quickly.
