Sacrament of Baptism

Baptisms are celebrated in both churches.

St. Patrick's Church, Clogh on the 2nd & 4th Saturday of each month and in Sacred Heart Church, Moneenroe on the 1st, 3rd & 5th Saturday of each month at 4pm / 16.00. 

If the same date is requested by more than one family then a multiple ceremony is celebrated. Two week's notice is required in all instances. 

A parent of the child to be baptised should make direct contact with Fr Corcoran to arrange the baptism. Each child is required to have two sponsors, at least one of whom must be Catholic and a witness to our faith. 

Baptism is the first of our seven sacraments and is required before any other sacrament can be conferred. 


A baptismal candle is required for each child and should not have been used before. All symbols on the candle should be Christian. 

To book a baptism please contact Fr Corcoran on 085 254 3904 or 056 444 2135 or email: tomjcorcoran1@gmail.com
