Baptism of the Lord
This photo of the stained glass window in the former baptistry area of the Cathedral depicts the baptism of Jesus in the River Jordan by John the Baptist.
290 children were baptised in Mullingar parish last year. We are delighted to welcome them to the community of faith. Baptisms are celebrated at 3pm in the Cathedral on the first, second and third Sunday of each month and on the fourth Sunday in St Paul's Church. Due to the large number of baptisms in our parish, it is impossible to accommodate the needs of individual families and we thank you for your understanding.
If you wish to have your child baptised, contact the Parish Office or download the Baptism Request Form from this website. Please complete the form and return it to the Parish Office at least three weeks prior to the intended date of baptism.
Sr. Philomena from the Baptism Team will make contact with you and you will be asked to attend a Pre-Baptism Meeting. We thank Sr. Philomena, Barry, Siobhan, Oliver, Deirdre, Jane, Pat, Paul, Mia, Liam, Maura and Niall who are the members of our baptismal team for their time and dedication.
