WHAT IS BAPTISM?
Baptism for Infants
Parents who wish to have their child baptized will need to contact the parish office to request the sacrament. If they are local to the parish, they should be registered through the parish office and ask to meet with the pastor or deacon for the parent pre-baptism class.
Parents are also reminded to be very careful in choosing godparents, as they will need to meet specific requirements in order to serve in this capacity.
Baptism for Children over age 7 / Youth / Adults
Those over the age of 7 are normally in a process called the "Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults" (RCIA). Our parish normally holds this during the academic year. Class gatherings involve prayer, interaction, a lesson, and mutual support. For further details, please contact the Pastor, Deacon, or the Director of Faith Formation.
