The Baptism Register must have the same names as the Birth certificate of the child. So please use this information when booking the baptism through the office. You will then be asked to bring your child’s Birth Certificate with you when you attend the Baptismal Preparation meeting.
Not all Christian denominations can serve as a Christian Witness alongside a Catholic Godparent. Please contact the parish if you are unsure as to the religious eligibility of your desired sponsor.
We do not permit any private baptisms in the parish. The parish of Sandyford would like to welcome you and to share in the privilege of raising your child in the faith, therefore the parish is very much a part of this celebration.
Sandyford has one of the highest numbers of yearly baptisms of any parish in the country. We are heartened that so many parents wish their child to join the Catholic Faith Community here in Sandyford, – or in some cases, return to their parent’s first parish for the Sacrament of Baptism.
We are very grateful to have a wonderful baptismal team which consists of dedicated parishioners who have volunteered to assist you with your child’s preparation for Baptism.
With every good wish and blessing, Yours Sincerely, Fr Andrew O Sullivan PP and the Parish and Baptism Ministry Teams
