A short pre-baptism meeting with parents and godparents takes place on the previous Tuesday at 7.15 p.m. in the Murray Centre. 2 Weeks’ notice is required - contact Parish Office at 01-2832988.
The Sacrament of Baptism
A child, through the Sacrament of Baptism, will become a member of the family of God on earth, the Church. By Baptism a child becomes a member of the parish. Through the grace of this sacrament the child will share in the very life of God Himself. This life is increased by the reception of the sacraments, especially Holy Communion, and by regular prayer.
The words of the ceremony are addressed to the parents, who ask for Baptism for their child and who are responsible for bringing up their children as good Catholics. They will do this mainly by the example of their own lives, by teaching them their prayers, and by going to Holy Communion with them.
