Sacrament of Baptism

Baptism for Infants and Children through Age 6:
Baptisms are held on the second and fourth Sundays of each month, at 12:45 PM in the church. This is for children (infants through six years of age). Please contact Karen Elmore for registration.

Requirements:
To prepare for the Sacrament of Baptism, parents must attend a Baptismal Preparation class. This is for first time parents only. These classes are offered on the third Saturday of each month, at 10:30 AM in the church. This class will deepen their understanding of their role in the religious formation of the child and their knowledge of the sacrament. Please call the parish office to register for the class.

Baptism for Children 7 Years and Above:
Children 7 years and older have reached the “age of reason,” and are therefore able to come to at least a basic understanding of their faith. Because of this, it is important that they receive two years of faith formation to prepare them to receive the Sacrament of Baptism, and any other Sacraments of Initiation (Eucharist, Confirmation).

Children who have not received formal instruction in the faith from a Catholic School or Parish are invited to join our Religious Education program to prepare for Baptism. We will typically register a child for our regular RE program for their first year, and for their second year, they will join a sacramental preparation group with other children in their same situation (RCIC or Rite of Christian Initiation for Children). High school aged youth will be evaluated on an individual basis.

To register your child for the Religious Education program, please visit the following link: https://secure.jotform.us/form/52330444426145

For more information, please contact Arlene Dizon, Director of Religious Education.

Baptism for Adults (18+):
Adults seeking baptism into the Catholic Church are invited to attend the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults). The RCIA is a group for adults who want to learn more about the Catholic faith, and are considering joining the Catholic Church by preparing to receive the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, First Communion/Eucharist, and Confirmation). We invite you to contact our RCIA Director, Karen Elmore, about coming to one of our welcoming sessions! Sessions are held Monday evenings, beginning in September, at 7:00 PM, in the Religious Education Office.
