The Christening of a child (or an adult) initiates them into the Catholic religion and is a cause for celebration for family and friends alike. It’s the first of many Catholic ceremonies that a person can undertake, others including Holy Communion, Confirmation and Reconciliation, among others. These milestones are usually performed in a Catholic church, but an increasing number of Christening venues in Melbourne are available for receptions. If you’re looking for Christening or Baptism venue be sure to explore Overnewton Castle.
