Baptism

Baptism is the first of three Sacraments of Initiation into full membership in the Catholic Church.  When a person is baptized their relationship with God is restored, they are infused with the Holy Spirit and they become a member of the Body of Christ.

There are 2 required sessions for preparation before the Baptism for parents and Sponsors who are baptizing a child for the first time.  It is very important that parents and sponsors attend these classes.

When choosing Sponsors please remember that:  Sponsors must be Catholic, at least 16 years of age, have received Confirmation and Eucharist and living a life which befits the role to be a Sponsor.  (Sponsors cannot be the mother or father of the child.)

Other requirements:  A copy of the official birth certificate and a $25.00 fee should be brought to the first preparation session.

See the Calendar for dates of Baptisms.  (These dates are subject to change.) 

Please contact Rita Bauldry (English) or Dcn. Luis Sanchez (Spanish) at least two months before the date desired for Baptism.
