PRE-BAPTISMAL GATHERINGS : From January 01 2016 we would like to invite all parents who wish to have their baby son/daughter baptised to attend a pre-baptismal gathering which we hope will assist in deepening their understanding of the sacrament of baptism. Godparents may come along for the pre- baptismal gathering if they so wish.
The Pre-Baptismal Gatherings will be held monthly at 7.30pm for approx 45mins
Patrickswell Church on the 2nd Tuesday of the Month
Ballybrown Church on the 3rd Monday of the Month.
If parents are unable to attend the pre-baptismal gathering in the Church where their baby will be baptised they may attend the pre-baptismal gathering in another church eg Infant is being baptised in Patrickswell Church parents may attend the pre-baptismal gathering in Ballybrown Church. It is advised that when parents are booking their baptism date that they book their pre-baptismal gathering also. Bookings can be made with Pauline in the Parish Office or with the Church Sacristans Maria and Pat.
