Baptism (Infants)

Our parish family rejoices in the birth of your children! They are signs to us that we are growing in numbers and holiness.

THE SACRAMENT OF BAPTISM

Baptism is the gateway to the rest of the sacraments of the Church, and as such, ensuring that families are properly disposed to introduce their child(ren) to a sacramental life is essential. To begin the process of preparing for an infant baptism, please contact the parish office. 

PARENTS WISHING TO HAVE THEIR CHILD BAPTIZED MUST

1. Be registered with the parish (registration form).

2. Regularly attend Mass (Sundays and Holy Days).

3. Support the parish for at least three months (envelopes or online giving).

4. All families are required to have a meeting with the pastor before a date can be confirmed. 

TO BEGIN THE PROCESS, PLEASE COMPLETE THE FOLLOWING

1. Download read, and complete the baptism request (request form).
