for Children of School age
Baptismal preparation is above all the responsibility of the parents in conjunction with the parish priest.
At the request of priests, the diocese has published a workbook which can be used to help prepare children for Baptism. It is for the parish priest to decide how and where this preparation takes place e.g. in parish or school, by a catechist or by the parents themselves.
This page provides some extra resources for parents or other adults to supplement the diocesan family workbooks.
