Baptism

Baptisms are celebrated every Sunday at 1:15 pm, except the first Sunday of the month.
Please call the Parish Office to make arrangements in advance.

Baptism Class for Parents
New parents who wish to have their first child baptized may do on-line sacramental preparation until the first Sunday of October when in-person Baptism preparation class resumes at the parish. Call one of the priests for information on on-line sacramental preparation. The Diocese has approved the celebration of Baptism at the parish but requires that only one baby be baptized at the Baptism ceremony. Family members and guests are to wear face masks and maintain social distance during the ceremony. Call one of the priests to schedule the Baptism. Baptism typically takes place on a Sunday.

Baptism Preparation Class
New or expectant parents are required to attend a Baptism Preparation class before their child is baptized.  The specific instructions on the Sacrament of Baptism are reviewed by the presiding staff member, as well as the history and value of baptism.  At each Baptism Class “current” parents share how they bring faith into their family life. Their focus is to provide practical tips, advice and know-how on the day to day realities of raising young children as Catholic Christians. Daily prayer, religious items in the home, communication within marriage, living out the faith beyond Sunday Mass, spending quality time with their children, showing them unconditional love and being good examples are topics that are covered.
