Baptism according to the Rites of the Catholic Church requires that at least one parent, and one of the godparents of the child will be baptised Catholics. Baptisms are generally celebrated at St Patrick’s on the first Sunday of each month.
The parents of the child/children will be required to meet with the priest prior to baptism to ensure they are committed to the undertaking of baptism for their child/children. This meeting will generally be held on second, third or fourth Saturday mornings at 10 am following Saturday morning mass. YOU MUST BOOK IN FOR THESE MEETINGS. PLEASE INDICATE THE DAY YOU WISH TO MEET WHEN COMPLETING THE BAPTISM REQUEST.
