The Government has now permitted Baptisms to take place without a limit to the number of guests, other than that imposed by the safe use of the building.
In practice in our church, this means that guests should not exceed fifty or so. They are recommended (but not obliged) to wear masks and to maintain social distance between households. They should sanitise their hands on entry to the church. Parents need to keep a list of their guests for track and trace purposes, as they will need to contact all those who were present should there be a case of infection.
Please would parents with a child to baptise download the application form below, and make an appointment with Fr Seán to discuss a date for the baptism.
Note, please, that those who live outside the parish boundaries need permission from their own parish priest.
Also, please note that each child needs to have at least one Christian name—not necessarily a first name as such, but the name of a saint or something similar as one of their first names.
Please fill in
and bring it to your meeting with Fr Seán.
If you have not attended a baptism course within the last few years, please now to book your Zoom course.
