Baptism

Baptism for Infants

 

During this time of social distancing, parishioners can call the parish office to schedule a private baptism for their child.

 

Baptisms are held typically on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month at 12:30 PM. We encourage parents to have their child baptized as soon as possible.  It is our hope to keep the number of babies baptized on any given date to four.  You can call the rectory office and schedule baptisms before the child is born.

Parents must attend a Baptism Class prior to the Baptism.  These classes are usually held on the first Saturday of the month.  Arrangements must be made ahead of time.

The Church requires that a child have at least one sponsor, preferably two.

All sponsors must be active, practicing Catholics, who are 16 years of age or older and have received the Sacrament of Confirmation.

If there is only one sponsor, another individual may be a Christian Witness if he/she is a Christian but not a Catholic who is not in good standing with the Church.

Contact the parish office to make arrangements for an infant Baptism.

Baptism and Confirmation for Children

Children age seven and older who desire Baptism and Confirmation are normally prepared through our parish school or religious education programs.
