Infant Baptism

The birth of a new child is a very happy and holy event. Therefore, when we introduce the child into the Church Community through Baptism, it calls for a celebration. Baptism preparation anticipates this celebration. Participants enjoy and appreciate the opportunity to discuss and share views on this important sacrament.

Our Baptism preparation program was initiated to help parents and sponsors understand why we baptize our children. The subject is discussed in practical rather than theological terms. The basic themes of Christian Community and parental responsibility are developed in the overall context of the baptismal ceremony. Thus, the baptism event has more meaning for those present.

Parents are required to take an Infant Baptism Class prior to the Baptism of their first child. Please complete our online Baptism Registration Form and we will contact you to arrange a Baptism Class.

Older teens, young adults and adults are invited to contact the parish office for programs suited to their needs. See also RCIA.

BAPTISM PREPARATION CLASS

Baptism Preparation Classes are held on the first Tuesday of the Month, except for the months of July and August.  Classes start at 7:00 pm in the Church, but we do suggest you check our calendar for most updated schedule.
