Baptisms take place on the 1st and the 3rd Sunday of each month at Sacred Heart Church, Wodonga.



To show that Baptism involves entry into a parish community, there will be a welcoming at Mass on the 1st Sunday of the month for all children who are going to be Baptised. Parents are asked to present their children to a welcoming Mass before their Baptism. For Baptisms of school-aged children, or adult reception into the church please contact The Parish Centre.
