Parish of the Immaculate Conception and St. Killian Clondalkin
Congratulations on the birth of your child!
Baptism or ‘Christening’ arrangements may vary from church to church. In Clondalkin Village Church Baptisms take place after the 12noon Mass on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month – approximately 12.45pm
Baptism is the beginning of your child’s life- journey with the Lord.
You can arrange a Christening in the Village Church by calling personally to the Parish Office in the Pastoral Centre (second door to the right of the front door of the Church) any morning from Monday to Friday (9.30 to 12.30) You will need to bring with you a copy of your child’s birth certificate.
As part of preparing for the big day, parents are expected to attend a pre-baptism meeting on the first Wednesday of the month at 8pm in the Parish Pastoral Centre at which all the practical details will be covered.
Please note that if you live outside Clondalkin Village Parish area you should first obtain a courtesy letter from the Priest in the Parish where you live – as this also helps to ensure that schools in your own parish will be aware of the number of children requiring places in that area.
On the day of the baptism please bring a baptismal candle and a white shawl.
