Congratulations on your desire to be baptized or to have your child baptized!
The Sacrament of Baptism is the introduction into the community of faith.
For parents requesting to have their child baptized, there are three steps to the process.
1. Fill out our online baptism request form.Online Baptism Request Form
2. Parents are to attend a baptism class.
There are two parts to the class. First, there is a meeting at church. Then there is a follow up meeting with either Deacon Jim or Nicole. The follow up meeting is scheduled individually with each family.
Do I have to attend the classes before the baptism?
Baptism is so important for the salvation of our children, the Church strongly urges parents to baptize their children within the first few weeks after birth. For this reason, we can be flexible with when parents receive baptism instruction. While it is best to be completed before your child is born, if it is not possible, we can make arrangements for parents to receive instruction after the baptism.
What are the upcoming dates for Part One of the baptism class?
Parents choose oneof the following Tuesday dates to attend.
- September 15, 2020 from 6:30 – 8:00 pm
- Tuesday, November 10, 2020 from 6:30 – 8 pm
3. Schedule the baptism!
After our Director of Faith Formation receives your Baptism Request, she will follow up with you to help you schedule the celebration of this Sacrament.
