Parish Baptism Team

In preparation for the Sacrament of Baptism two members of the Baptism Team visit the child’s home to express their congratulations and, on behalf of the Parish Community, to welcome the newly arrived.

The brief discussion centres around the Reading, Prayers of the Faithful, significance of the symbols used in the ceremony, church seating arrangements etc.

A Family Prayer Book will be presented to the parents as a memento of the occasion.


The members of the Baptism Team are:

Margo Duffy, Jane Smith, Phylis Barrett, Mary Whelan, Sr. Genevieve, Martina Scanlan, Valerie O’Sullivan, Ann Shine, Fr. John and Fr. Liam.

The Baptism Team may be contacted through the Parish Office or Parochial House Kells 046 924 0213.
