Information on the parish of Bonane/Glengarriff
Congratulations on the birth of your child. Baptisms in the Parish are by appointment. An application form can be downloaded from this site (see below). Please complete the application form and forward it to the address above, together with your childs birth cert. The birth Cert will be returned to you on the day of the baptism. The application form can be handed into the sacristy before or after Mass or the Presbytery. 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.
Application form for Baptism
Two parishioners have been trained in the parish. Further details on the Parish and Diocesan policy in relation to safeguarding children can be found on the notice board of the Churches of the Parish.
Wedding application Form
Three months’ notice of the marriage should be given to the parish where the bride and groom live. A pre-nuptial enquiry form is completed by both the Bride and Groom. The State obliges you to give at least three months notice. For this purpose you may contact an Office of Registration of Births, Deaths & Marriages. A list of offices can be found on www.groireland.ie.
