Preparation for Baptism

There is a preparation programme for the Sacrament of Baptism  in the pastoral area of the parishes of Greystones and Kilquade.

The purpose of the programme is to support parents in reflecting on the significant step they are taking in bringing their child to be baptised into the Christian Community.  It will take place over a 3 month period and involves;

  1.  information for the parents to discuss together
  2. a meeting where parents will meet other parents also preparing for this Sacrament
  3. a Mass at which the parents will introduce their child to the community and have their child formally welcomed into that faith community
  4. the Baptism ceremony followed by ongoing engagement between the family and the community.
