Sacrament of Baptism

A few  years ago the Parish introduced new arrangements for baptisms.

Parish Baptisms 2020
Baptisms in the Parish will take place on two Saturdays each month, one Saturday in Craigbane and one Saturday in Claudy. You are welcome to book either church for the child’s baptism on the dates listed.

Choose a baptism date with the Parish Baptismal team. The Parish Baptismal team will be available in the Parish Pastoral Centre after the 11.30am mass on the dates listed in the chart below
As part of the registration process, the Baptismal team will complete a Baptismal Registration form
In addition, the parent(s) will be invited to stay for a short talk about the Sacrament of Baptism. The talk will last approximately 15 minutes. If a parent is unable to stay for the talk, the Baptismal team will arrange for someone to come and meet you in your home before the baptism

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you need further information – e-mail:

As your child grows it is important to pray with them, share some bible stories,

visit the Church to light a candle for someone who is sick, attend Mass…etc.

We pray God’s Blessing upon you in the challenge ahead of bringing up your child in the faith….
