Confirmation, First Holy Communion & Baptism

The government and healthcare authority advice (30th June 2021) remains that: 

"religious ceremonies such as Baptisms, First Holy Communions and Confirmations should not take place at this time. Further advice will follow on the resumption of these ceremonies when it is safe to do so”  

and the Archbishop of Dublin has now told parishes (3rd August) that his own advice of 30th April -- that Confirmation and First Holy Communion be deferred until Autumn 2021 -- remains appropriate.  

This parish still hopes to hold the rescheduled Confirmation 2020 ceremonies in mid-September 2021

followed by First Holy Communions 2021 in late September,  

and Confirmations 2021 in early October.  

Our Communion and Confirmation Clubs, our parish-based preparation courses, will continue as scheduled until they are completed.

The parish will be in contact with parents/ guardians with exact dates for small group ceremonies. Thank you for your patience and please check the parish Newsletter (in church and online) for updates. 

Baptisms have resumed and the parish is contacting parents who had booked before the restrictions. New bookings may be made by completing the Baptism Booking Form from the parish website and returning it to the parish office. 



Healthcare Update 15th October 2021

Public Mass has resumed. Our stewards will be on duty, and we would ask you please to continue wearing facial masks, sanitising your hands, and keeping the safe social distance of 2 meters, both inside and outside the church.

Help us save our 1856 church!

The church of St. Alphonsus and Columba was built in 1856. Unfortunately, because it is exposed to the wind and rain on Killiney Hill, it is suffering from a serious water-ingress problem
