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 register their child for baptism by completing a Baptismal Registration Form and returning it to the Parish Office. A copy of baby's Birth Certificate must be included with the application for Baptism or provided before the Parent Preparation Meeting. When the Registration Form is returned, you will receive an email with a link to our website where you can then choose the date and time of baptism.
Please note that up to 3 infants are baptised at each ceremony.
The Baptismal Preparation Meetings take place in St Cronan’s Parish Pastoral Centre, usually but not always, on the first Thursday of the month at 8pm. You will be notified by email of the date of your Preparation Meeting.
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 and answer any questions you may have.
St. Cronan's Church Baptism Team
Please email the Parish Office to book a baptism.
When we receive your completed Registration Form,
a link will be sent to you where you can then choose the date and time of baptism.
A copy of baby's Birth Certificate is required.
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.
