Sacraments

St Timothy’s encourages family participation in sacramental preparation and celebration. Please contact the Parish early in your planning to discuss your needs.

Baptisms

Are held the first Sunday of every month (except January) during the 10.30 a.m. Mass, or alternatively at 12 noon if the Mass time presents difficulties. In addition to the Baptism itself, the program comprises:

  • An evening meeting with members of our Baptism Team who prepare you for the sacrament and guide you through the whole process
  • A Welcoming Mass, usually at 10.30am. on the Sunday preceding the Baptism

Please ring the Parish office on 9878 8858 at least 6 weeks prior to your preferred date to ensure enough time for preparation.

Marriage

Weddings are arranged in consultation with the Parish Priest. For enquiries, please ring 9878 8858.
