Baptism

“Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit, and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons and daughters of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission…” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1213)
Infant Baptism

Baptism:
First and Third Sundays of the month following 11:00 am Mass. Godparents MUST obtain Sponsor Certificate from their home parish. One hour class is required for parents. Call the Rectory to register for Baptisms.

Parents are asked to choose someone to serve as godparent or sponsor for their child. Since the sponsor’s role is to assist parents in passing on the faith in which the child is being baptized, parents should choose someone who will take the role seriously and will be a good role model for the child. Church law sets minimum requirements: at least 16 years old, already confirmed, and a practicing Catholic.

If you would like to schedule a Baptism, please contact the parish office.
