Preparation Meeting for Parents

Newbridge Parish requires parents to attend a preparation meeting before registering a child for Baptism. These meetings are held once a month in the Parish Centre at 8pm.

Baptismal Ministers
Baptism Ministers have been established in the Parish for over twenty years. They welcome the child on behalf of the Parish.
At present there are about twelve people on the team. Families are contacted by one of the ministers the week before their Baptism is due, to arrange a home visit, to help in the immediate preparation for Baptism. If you are living outside the Parish, you will require a letter of permission from your own Parish.

Dates for Baptism Ceremonies
Baptisms take place as follows:

First Saturday of the month in St Conleth’s Parish Church,
Second Saturday in Cill Mhuire,
Third Saturday St. Conleth’s Parish Church,
Fourth Saturday in the Dominican Church,
Fifth Saturday in St Conleth’s Parish Church,
First and third Sunday at 11.30 p. m. in Cill Mhuire.
