Congratulations on the birth of your baby and on your decision to have them Baptised here in St. Cronan's Church.  

Parents requesting baptism for their child must first fill out a Baptismal Registration Form.   A copy of baby's Birth Cert must be included with the application for Baptism or provided before the Parent Meeting.


The parents will then be given the date for the next Baptismal Preparation Meeting. These take place in  St Cronan’s Church, usually but not always, on the first Thursday of the month.


At this meeting the parents will be introduced to the Baptism Team (members of the parish) who will be in attendance during the ceremony. The purpose of the meeting is to explain the basic elements of the baptism ceremony.

The information that you provide when registering your child for the Sacraments is strictly for Parish use.  It will be used to register your child for Baptism.  The information will be recorded in the Parish Register and Parish Database and will be retained permanently. 

Once the Baptism is registered, the form and the copy of the Birth Certificate will be destroyed.

All correspondence will be sent by email from the Parish Office.
