An application form can be downloaded from this site (see below). Please complete the application form, together with your childs birth certificate. The application form can be handed into the parish office during office hours. Occasionally we get a request as to what are the requirements for Godparents. The following are the diocesan guidelines. A godparent must be a baptised Catholic who is at least sixteen years old, has received the sacraments of Holy Eucharist and Confirmation, and is in good standing with the Catholic Church.  Most parents choose their children’s godparents because of a personal relationship. But “godparent” is not merely an honorary title we bestow because someone is a friend or because it’s a certain relative’s “turn.” A godparent is supposed to be involved in the faith formation of the child as a Catholic.

In the event of a Mass not being available for the anniversary of your loved one, a  Multiple Intentions Mass with more than one intention will be celebrated in Castleisland Parish Church usually Tuesday and/or Friday evening.  
It gives people an opportunity to be present at the Mass where their intention is remembered. 
Offerings for these Masses are divided between the parish and Charities. Over the past year we were able to support some local charities as well as some people from the parish who worked in poorer countries.
