St. John The Baptist, Blackrock

Baptisms in our Parish

First Sunday of the month at 1 p.m. and third Saturday at 12 noon.

If you wish to arrange for your baby’s Baptism, please contact the Parish Office at least two weeks before your preferred/proposed date. You will need to complete an application form and include a copy of your child’s birth certificate.

For Baptism of older children and adults, please contact the Parish Office or the Parish Administrator. Please see for more information on Adult Baptism.

Our Lord makes it clear that Baptism is necessary for salvation. The newly-baptised person assumes the responsibility of living a holy life and, particularly in the case of an infant, this will require the support of Parents and Godparents.
