Firstly, congratulations on the birth of your child. Please see below the information regarding Baptisms in our parish.
Baptisms must be booked through the respective parish offices, giving at least one month's notice. A copy of your child's birth certificate is required for booking. If you are living outside of our parish, a letter from your home parish giving permission for your child to be baptised in Bohernabreena Parish must also accompany the booking form.
Please note that Godparents must be over aged 16 and confirmed and practising Catholics.
Your booking information will be shared with the co-ordinator of our Baptism Team who will arrange for a member of the team to call to your home before the baptism (if you are living in our parish) to meet with you and answer any questions you may have. Visits will be arranged by appointment only.
