The Sacrament of Baptism is celebrated in our parish on the last Saturday of the month at 3.00pm except at Easter when the sacrament is celebrated during the Easter Vigil. A pre-baptismal meeting is held the previous week at 7.30pm in the parish centre.
When parents wish to present their child for Baptism they are invited to contact Kim (Secretary) at the Parish Office, (01) 820 5480. Kim will discuss the dates of Baptism, take the initial information and arrange a meeting with the *Parish Baptism Team.
The policy of the parish is to have a number of children baptised together to create a true sense of joining a community of believers. Single baptisms are not encouraged.
*The Parish Baptism Team is a group of volunteers who serve to welcome and prepare families in advance of the day of baptism and attend the liturgy itself. They are a sign that baptism is never just a private family occasion but the parish and the universal Church also share in the rejoicing and responsibilities of having a new disciple.
Current member of our Baptism Team are:
Sr. Ignatius, Mary Duffy, Kim Geoghegan & Julie May Morris.
For adults who which to receive baptism, enrolment is required in the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) programme. We invite you to make contact with the parish secretary or one of the parish team.
