Registration & Preparation for Sacraments of Initiation

The Sacraments of Christian Initiation are Baptism, Eucharist (Communion) and Confirmation.

Each of these Sacraments require preparation on behalf of the person, their sponsors and their families.

It is policy in the pastoral area of Greystones and Kilquade parishes that all register for each of these Sacraments in advance of the Sacrament. This enables us to:

  • Schedule the appropriate preparation programmes
  • Determine the number of sacramental ceremonies needed
  • Resource these appropriately
  • Keep people informed of activities and events arranged as part of the preparation.
  • Keep in touch with people after the Sacrament itself.
Parish Registration
We are updating our parish registration system over the coming year in order to include all of the existing and new families in our pastoral area.  Consequently, we have changed the focus of our registration form to include detail about your family members and not just the child being presented for the Sacraments at this time.  Gathering this information will enable us to plan for growth and to develop resources to meet the needs of all parishioners in as far as is possible.  We appreciate your taking the extra few moments required to complete this detail.
