Baptisms

baptism 1Baptisms may be scheduled on Saturdays at 1:30PM. Baptism classes, for first time parents and parents not married in the Catholic Church, are held on the first Saturday of the month, in the lower church, at 11:00 AM.
(due to the Pandemic we have made different arrangements for the Baptism class).  

Please call the rectory to reserve a date.  Private baptism are available on request according to the church's availability.  

Godparents
All children being baptized must have at least one godparent, and that person must be a practicing Catholic, who has received the sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation and is at least 16 years of age.  If you select two godparents, one must be male and the other female. A member of another Christian denomination may be a Christian witness to the Baptism, but would not be recorded as a godparent.  All potential godparents must complete a Sponsor Eligibility Form which will be given at the rectory in order to serve as a Godparent.

Fees
There is no specified fee for baptizing your child, however it is appropriate to make an offering in gratitude for the grace of the sacrament.
