Updates on Baptism

Bishop Fintan Gavin has advised parishes that arrangements can be made for the celebration of the Sacrament of Baptism in parishes to take place from Thursday 5th August next limited to immediate family members to include parents, siblings, sponsors and grandparents.  

Every effort should be made to keep the number in attendance to less than ten people for individual baptisms. The guidance further states that celebrations ‘must follow all protective measures and social gatherings afterwards should be avoided’.
