Welcome to our Webpage.  In this page it is hoped that you will get some information on the parish of Bonane/Glengarriff

Baptism
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.

Safeguarding Children
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.

Getting Married?
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.

Couples are requested to attend a Pre Marriage Course as part of the marriage preparation. In  Bantry pre-marriage courses may be arranged through ACCORD, at 5 Main Street, Bantry, 027 50272. accordbantry@eircom.net.  Early booking is essential. Couples who may be considering doing courses other that ones organised by Accord are advised to speak to Fr Michael to ensure that the course meets the Church requirements.
First Fridays
Some people are unable to attend Mass each week. This may be as a result of sickness or advanced years. There is a tradition of a priest doing calls to the homes of the housebound once a month. On a ‘First Friday’ visit the priest prays with the parishioner, brings Communion and may also celebrate the sacrament of confession and the sacrament of Anointing. If you would like a First Friday visit please contact the parish.
