Infant baptisms (for children under 7 years of age) are celebrated on the last weekend of the month with the exception of the liturgical seasons of Advent and Lent. Families may choose to celebrate the Rite of Baptism within a parish Mass or at a time outside of Mass.
Parents must be registered members of St. Patrick Parish and must attend two (2) preparation sessions conducted by our Baptismal Preparation Team.
One godparent is required for Baptism, but two (a male and a female) may be recorded in the baptismal record. A godparent must be Catholic, at least 16 years of age, be baptized, confirmed, and have celebrated First Eucharist. They must be actively practicing their Catholic faith. A baptized, non-Catholic Christian may serve as a Christian witness to a Baptism along with a Catholic godparent.

Contact Jeanette Rowland in the Parish Office (244-6083) to register for a baptismal date and for the preparation sessions. Complete the Baptismal Information Worksheet and send it to the Parish Office well in advance of the baptism. Baptisms are not scheduled until after the form is received.
