Baptisms at Galway Cathedral are by arrangement, and take place on Sundays immediately following the 12:30 Mass - usually at about 13:20.

Baptisms should take place in the parish in which the child's family is resident. If the family is not resident within the Cathedral parish and you still wish your child to be baptised in the Cathedral, we require a letter from your parish priest giving permission for the baptism to take place outside his parish.

At least one months' notice is required. Once the Cathedral office has been notified, a member of the Cathedral Baptismal Team will make arrangements to visit the family.

For further information or to arrange a baptism, please contact the Cathedral office.
