Baptism

 

Infant Baptism

Baptism for infants and children is celebrated during a weekend liturgy, six or seven weekends a year. Parents anticipating the birth of a child are encouraged to prepare for the baptism of their child prior to his/her birth. A two-session Baptism Preparation program, held on Monday evenings, is provided prior to the celebration of baptism. The program is for parents and is also open to godparents. Contact Jim Read at 245-9733 x19 for more information about the classes as well as clarification of godparent requirements. 

Baptism of School Age Children

Parents seeking baptism for their school age children should contact the parish office. A program of formation suitable for the child will be provided by our Family/Children Formation ministers prior to the celebration of sacraments of initiation.

Baptism of Adults

Adults (including young adults of high school age) are baptized after participation in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). Check out our Catechumenate page for more detailed infromation. [Click here]

Adults wishing to complete their initiation into the Roman Catholic Church are invited to participate in a six-week program. Offered each semester, the program is open to participants from any parish in the region. Contact Barb Herzog 245-9733 x13.
