Many thanks to all who contributed.BaptismsBaptisms in our parish are held on Saturday evenings at 5.00 p.m. On the first and Third Saturdays they are held in Burtonport, and on the second and fourth Saturdays they are held in Kincasslagh.A Baptism is the introduction of a candidate to the catholic faith and community, and to their own salvation. A promise of salvation is granted to each candidate to embraces the faith at baptism and does so for the rest of their lives. An infant cannot do this, and therefore it is through the faith of the parents and Godparents that the sacrament is permitted. That is why the first thing parents do at a baptism is promise to bring their child up in the faith.In a baptism the paschal candle is lit, and from it the candidates candle is lit symbolizing that they share in what Christ won for us at Easter through his death and resurrection. At a funeral we light the paschal candle once again as we ask God to make good on that promise of eternal life.A baptism is not a private affair. It is a community celebration. It should be held while the community is gathered, i.e., at Mass. However for various reasons this does not happen, except on Holy Saturday Vigil Mass. That is why in this parish we put the picture of the new candidates into the newsletter, as this is the only way the community can know that new members are joining. But where a number of candidates are to be baptized they should join the community together, with their families present. When this happens the community are gathered and a sense of community is established.WeddingsBoth the church and state require three months notice of an impending Marriage. Candidates need to go along to the priest in the parish where they are living and complete the pre nuptial enquiry form. This involves producing an up to date Baptismal Certificate issued within six months of the date of the wedding, and a confirmation cert. It also requires the completion of a pre marriage course, which can be booked online at www.accord.ie. You need to contact the registrar at 074 9123771 to discuss the civil requirements of marriage and to arrange an appointment to give three months notice.€21,000 every 21 daysTo celebrate 21 years of successful fundraising, the Friends of Letterkenny General Hospital are launching their 21,000 every 21 days campaign on Monday 21st January at 7.30 p.m. in the conference room, Floor A, Letterkenny General hospital.
