Baptism

By Baptism we become members of the Church, the Body of Christ.

Baptism

Due to COVID-19 and social distancing protocols, our baptism and preparation class schedules are currently suspended.  You may call the parish office at 244-6083 ext 107 with any additional questions.

Requirements:

  • Parents must attend a preparation session 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. It is entirely allowable for each child to have a Christian witness as well. A Christian witness is an adult who is baptized in a Christian tradition other than Catholic and is practicing in that Christian tradition. The Christian witness, however, is not considered a second godparent but can be listed as a Christian witness in our parish’s official sacrament record and on a baptismal certificate.

  • Complete and submit the electronic Baptismal Information Form. which includes the preparation date of choice, in advance of the baptism. Baptisms are not scheduled until the form is received.  
  •  Contact Jeanette Rowland in the Parish office at 244-6083 if you have any questions.
