The Church of Ireland baptised infants and adults who have never been baptised. If there are any children not baptised, their parents should contact the clergy to arrange a suitable time. This can be at either morning services. All baptisms are held in the context of a Sunday Service. If there is a particular reason why this should not be so, please discuss with the ministry.

Christian Marriage

Couples who are resident within the parish boundaries have the right to be married in their parish church. If you do not live in the parish, you may still be married here if one or both of you worship regularly at the church in the period preceding the proposed wedding date. If you are not resident in the parish and do not think you would be able to make the regular worship commitment outlined above, but have a connection with Kilternan in some other way, it may still be possible to marry here under special circumstances. Please speak to the Parish Secretary or the Rector to see whether you might qualify.

Getting married is a big decision. It’s one that the church rejoices in and seeks to offer prayer and encouragement. The church sees marriage as a sign of God’s love among us. It’s a sacrament that mirror Gods relationship with the church and enriches the church and community in which the couple live. At Kilternan we want to make sure that we that couples preparing for marriage are encouraged. Couples getting married in Kilternan are required to attend a marriage preparation plan with the rector during which couple will be encouraged to reflect on a different aspect of marital life. There will be an opportunity for partners to speak directly with each, but there will also be a chance for couples to chat with other couples. There is no charge for a couple from the parish getting married, though couples often chose to give a donation. There are additional costs for the organist that will be discussed with him directly.
