In baptism a new life of faith begins. Catholic parents have the privilege and the responsibility of handing on their faith to their children. They do this by their example at home, by sharing their own relationship with Jesus and by being part of the family of the parish.
Parents are invited to contact Fr. Harry (olhoc.oxford [at] rcaob.org.uk). He will arrange to meet you, to talk about the meaning of Christian baptism, and you have the opportunity to share your faith and understanding of baptism and to ask any questions you may have. Once the preparation is complete we can arrange a date for the celebration. Baptisms usually take place on Sunday afternoons.
