To arrange your Baptism please contact the Parish Secretary

Preparing for Baptism

Glanmire Parish has pre-baptismal information sessions.

Any couple who intends to have a baby baptized will need to attend an hour long meeting in advance of the baptism. The dates of these meetings are available from the secretary, Eileen (021 4820654).

A BAPTISM CAN ONLY TAKE PLACE AFTER ATTENDANCE AT ONE OF THESE MEETINGS

Each of the baptismal meetings will be led by one of the three baptism teams in the parish. The purpose of the meeting is to meet the team, all of whom are parents themselves, and to explore the meaning of the sacrament you have chosen for your child. One of the priests will call to your home nearer the date of the baptism to discuss the baptism ceremony and to prepare the readings etc. You will have the opportunity during that visit to fill out the Baptismal Registration Form which will be used to record the baptism in the parish register.

Baptisms take place on Saturdays at 4.00 pm. They are celebrated in St Joseph’s Church, Springhill, except on the last Saturday of each month when they are in St Michael’s Church, Upper Glanmire.
