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 http://litmus.dublindiocese.ie/category/rcia/ 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.
