Sacrament of Baptism


Baptisim

The Sacrament of Baptism is the first step in a lifelong journey of commitment and discipleship. Whether we are baptized as infants or adults, Baptism is the Church’s way of celebrating and enacting the embrace of God.

Parents must be registered in the Parish.  Please call the pastor at least 4 months before your child is due.  Instruction is required and normally held on the 1st Monday of each month.  It is best to attend this class before the child’s birth.  Baptism is celebrated in our Parish in two parts:  1.) Welcoming of the child and his/her parents on the 3rd Sunday of each month, 2.) Baptism is celebrated at the 9AM Mass on the 1st Sunday of the month or at 1PM on a designated Saturday.  Exceptions are made for holidays.
