Baptism

 

Baptisms take place on the last Sunday of the month – after 11.15am Mass and during Mass on given Feast days.

The next possible Baptism dates are Sunday, 27th August 2017 and Sunday, 24th September 2017.

Do NOT set a date for your child’s Baptism until you have met with the priest.

Requests for Baptism: Some notes and things to do before

  • Are you registered at your local parish as a Roman Catholic?
  • Yes?  Then ask your Swiss parish of residence to email the ESCM office to confirm that you are registered as a Roman Catholic and that they give you permission to baptize your child here.  After this, you may register with us and contact us to request the Sacrament of Baptism for your child.
  • No?  Then go to your local Gemeinde and/or parish and register as Catholic - then ask your Swiss parish of residence to email the ESCM office to confirm that you are registered as a Roman Catholic and that they give you permission to baptize your child here.  After this, you may register with us and contact us to request the Sacrament of Baptism for your child.
  • At least one godparent must be Roman Catholic and we will need proof of this - either a letter from their parish or a copy of their baptism certificate.
