The Sacrament of Baptism

As of December, 2020, Baptisms are slowly resuming in the Parish. In order to make a booking, please contact the Parish Office on 01 840 9043 or email us at


In Baptism you take on an important commitment; you promise to help your child to grow in Christian faith.  Your child is unique and precious in the sight of God and in Baptism the Christian community of the parish welcomes a new member. All are welcome to participate in this happy event, particularly the parents, godparents, relatives, neighbours and friends of the person being Baptised.


Baptisms in St. Finian's Church are on the second and fourth Sunday of every month at 12:30pm.

Baptisms on Easter Vigil and Easter Sunday.

All Baptisms to be booked one month in advance.

Preparation meeting is usually on the Wednesday prior to the Baptism in the Church at 8:00pm.





Our Baptism Team

We have a vibrant baptism team here in St Finian’s parish however, as we have a lot of baptisms we need a lot of members.  At this stage we are in need of some new members!  This is a very joyful and satisfying ministry and involves being part of a baptism every eight weeks (approximately) on either the 2nd or 4th Sunday of the month and a forty minute meeting on the previous Wednesday.  The parish Baptism Team are looking for new members to join their team. Training will be provided. Time commitment for this ministry is four Sunday’s a year. Do you think this ministry is for you? If so please contact Grace on 087 265 9400.
