Sacraments

baptism image 2Baptism is the Sacrament in which we celebrate God's gift of eternal life to our children. In this Sacrament we, the Christian community, welcome them with great joy. We promise to help them by word and example to live the faith which we share with them. That is why, gathered around the baptismal font, we renew the promises that were made on our behalf when we were Baptised, and which we made for ourselves when we were confirmed.

The Sacrament of Baptism will generally be celebrated at the Sacred Heart Church 12.30 pm on the second and fourth Saturdays of the Month.

marriage 1Congratulations on your engagement. At Donnybrook Parish, we lookforward to helping you prepare for the celebration of your marriage and for your future together. We hope that this time of preparation will be a happy time for you.

The months coming up to your marriage can be very busy. It can be difficult to find the time and space to reflect on what your marriage is all about. Christian marriage is a Sacrament. In other words, it is one of the ways in which Jesus Christ continues to be present and active among his people. By choosing to celebrate your marriage as Christians, you commit yourselves to making your own love a sign of Christ's love, for each other, for your children, and for the community in which you live.
