As part of the initiation of your child into the sacrament of Baptism we follow two stages: Preparation Meeting and Baptism Ceremony.
The Preparation Meeting is where you will meet in person with Fr. Frank, who will provide you with an overview of the Baptismal rite and what it means for you and your child, as well as the necessary materials to support your preparation. It is the responsibility of parents to follow the required preparation. This meeting will enable you to celebrate the Baptism of your child into the Catholic faith and to understand your duties and responsibilities to instruct and guide them as they grow both physically and spiritually as faithful members of Christ’s church.
The following link provides Practical Baptismal Information for the day of your child’s Baptismal ceremony.
Baptism Ceremonies take place on assigned dates in both churches.
If you wish to have your child baptised, please contact the Parish Office on 01-4515570 and we can let you know the next available date and make arrangements for you to meet with Fr. Frank.
One Sponsor (Godparent), male or female, is sufficient; but there may be no more than two (one male and one female).
Sponsors should be over sixteen years of age, be a Catholic who has been confirmed and should have a positive interest in, commitment to, and practice the Catholic Faith.
A Sponsor who is married must be married in accord with the laws of the Catholic Church.
