Baptism  in  Emly

    Saturday afternoon and Sunday after Mass.

Please give at least two (2) week’s notice.

Obtain a Request for Baptism from at the church sacristy after Masses or directly from Fr. Moloney, Parochial Hose, Main Street.


Sponsors (Godparents) must be:

[a] Over 16 years of age;

[b] Confirmed;

[c] Practising Catholics, who can give their godchild

the necessary good example of faithful Christian

living and worship.


Note:  There is a special ceremony for a child who is adopted, and for one who was baptized in an emergency. Both ceremonies welcome the child into the Church community.


Pope Francis, in Croke Park last August, urged parents to have their children baptized in the first month or two after birth,  and not to postpone it.


The Name Ailbe :  It would be good to revive the practice of including the name of our parish patron among the names given to newborn babies : Ailbe, for boys; Ailbhe for girls.

Day of Prayer for Migrants  &  Refugees

A migrant is one who moves from one location to another in search of a better way of living. It’s a free choice but it can present big challenges.

A refugee is a person who is forced to flee from home because of war, violence, persecution or famine. It may take years to re-build their lives.
