Baptism

Baptism is the first sacrament of Christian initiation. It is the sacrament that frees a person from original sin and makes that person a member of Christ and His Church. One must be baptized before sharing in any of the other sacraments.

Infants can be baptized soon after birth and anytime thereafter. At the time of Baptism, parents vow to practice their faith and provide a Catholic upbringing for the child.

Join us in celebrating the Sacrament!

Baptisms are generally celebrated on the first Sunday of the month at 12:00 p.m. Please note scheduling may be adjusted for holiday weekends. 

Parents who wish to have their child baptized should contact the parish office to register.
Parents are required to attend a catechesis prior to the sacrament. 


Godparents


The Godparents role is to assist the parents in their raising of their children in the Catholic faith. Parents, in choosing God parents for their children, should require that the Godparents chosen be practicing the Catholic faith.  At least one Godparent is required and must have received all of the sacraments of initiation: Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation.  The second Godparent must be of the opposite gender, and if not Catholic, may be a baptized Christian witness.  Godparents must be age 16 or older.
