Notice Re Baptism 2020

****Baptisms are suspended until further notice due to Covid-19****

0e7482782_1529620321_baptism-web-newArchbishop Diarmuid Martin recently announced his support for a new approach to the preparation for and celebration of the Sacraments of Baptism, First Reconciliation, First Communion and Confirmation.

You can read the statement from Archbishop Diarmuid Martin here: Significant Sacramental Changes

This new approach will focus on supporting parents in sharing faith with their children. The Archbishop says: This cannot be put forever on the long finger. We must begin now.

So, we in our Parish are making some adjustments to our arrangements for Baptism for 2020. We will continue the approach we have had these last couple of years, but with the addition of an Information Meeting For Baptism taking place first. This is a Meeting for parents. There will be no Baptisms in January.

If parents are considering presenting their child for Baptism in February or March, they need to attend the Information Meeting For Baptism on Wednesday 22nd January at 8 pm in St Kevin’s.

Parents need to go to the Parish Office to book a place at the Meeting.

Full details of the Baptism procedure can be found: Baptism

“The first human problem which the infant Jesus faced on earth was a lack of shelter. As Christians, our obligation to people who are homeless or poorly housed is unequivocal for it is Christ who is homeless: He is a room at the inn? the elderly couple in a damp house; He is the lone parent in a B&B; He is the Traveller moved on from a site. The Incarnation makes explicit God’s commitment to walking with humanity in joy and in suffering.”

As the issues with housing and the numbers presenting as homeless reach record numbers, the Irish Bishops’ Conference has released a Pastoral Letter on Housing and Homelessness. To read the full text of the Pastoral Letter on Housing and Homelessness, please click A Room at the Inn?
