Naming Day Ceremony

Irish society is changing and we now have a rich diversity of cultures and traditions.   Many parents are choosing to raise their children outside of the traditional religious organisations, but they still want the opportunity to celebrate the new addition to their family.


Naming day celebrations provide the perfect alternative to traditional baptisms.  The ceremony is created in collaboration with the parents and can include input from the wider family or community.  The focus is on the child; the possibilities for them, the joy they have brought to the family, the hopes and wishes for their future.


IECS celebrants can advise on different elements to include to make the ceremony completely unique and special, just like the new person whose life we are celebrating!
