Sacrament of Baptism
Congratulations on the birth of your child!
And congratulations on taking the first steps to sharing the beauty of our Catholic faith with your child. Through baptism your child is welcomed into our parish community and we commit to supporting you and your child on your faith journey. Another important support to help you share your faith with your child is choosing your child’s godparents. The role of godparents is not simply honorary but they should assist you in sharing the Catholic faith with your child. Naturally one cannot share what one does not have. Therefore, the godparent must be an active Catholic over 16 years of age who has received Confirmation, and regularly participates in Sunday Mass. If they are married, they must be married in the Catholic Church. Your godparents should contact their parish to secure a letter stating that they are eligible to serve as godparents.
The Sacrament of Baptism for Infants and Children (age 7 and younger) is typically celebrated after the 12 pm Mass on selected Sundays. Upon the completion of our Baptismal Preparation Class, parents can choose from any of the available dates on our calendar for the Baptism.
