Sacraments

Celebrating the sacraments is at the core of our parish life. Our big moments in life are marked in a solemn way from womb to tomb.

On this page we will provide all the details for the celebration of the sacraments and there is a link to more information on each sacrament.

Baptism

To make arrangements for a baptism in our parish call into the Parish Office or call the office 057 862 1142 or email us info@portlaoiseparish.ie.

We celebrate baptism in the Parish Church every weekend, generally on the first Sunday of each month (at 1.15pm) and on every Saturday (11.30am). Full list of dates available on Baptism page and in the Parish Centre.

A member of the Baptismal Team will arrange an appointment with you to help prepare for the ceremony.

The names of those welcomed recently into our Christian Community through baptism are listed on the Welcome page of our website.

Holy Orders

The ongoing life of the church depends on vocations to the priesthood. Our diocese has a director of vocations and we’d be delighted to make an introduction for any interested candidates. Talk to any of the priests to get more information. The Kildare and Leighlin Diocesan website also has useful information about Vocations in our diocese.

Anointing of the sick

The priests of the parish attend to our sick in hospitals and at home. Many like to receive the sacrament of the sick and are strengthened and affirmed. If you would like to receive the sacrament of the sick or know someone who would please contact any of the priests or the parish office 057 862 1142.
