Baptism

Baptism Preparation 

Please call the parish office to register for a baptism class before the birth of the baby. A baptism class is required for parents and sponsors. Quarterly baptism classes are held. Please call the office for times. 

Selecting Godparents

The Godparents should be selected carefully since they represent the Church. You are required to have one Godparent, but you can select 2. If you have 2, one is to be male and the other female. 

 

The Church requires that a Godparent be:

  • At least 16 years of age

  • Be a Catholic who has been Confirmed and shares in Holy Communion

  • Leads a life in harmony with Church teaching 

  • If married, the Godparent should be married through the Catholic Church

Baptizing an Older Child

If your son or daughter is seven years or older, please contact the parish office to discuss options to prepare your child for Baptism. 

For more information please contact the Parish Office.
