Baptism

The Baptism of children is ordinarily celebrated on the first Sunday of each month, following the 11:00 am Mass. A required seminar for parents and godparents of children to be baptized is held on each Monday following the first Sunday of the month,at 6:30 pm in the small meeting room in the Activity Center.

The Baptism of adults is ordinarily celebrated at the Easter Vigil each year, in conjunction with the parish process for the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. Special arrangements for Baptisms at other times may be requested due to particular circumstances.

For Baptism, at least one sponsor is required. The sponsor must be a baptized, confirmed and practicing Catholic, at least 16 years of age. In addition, there may be one other godparent, of the opposite gender as the sponsor. If Catholic, this other godparent must meet the same requirements of a sponsor. If not a Catholic, this other godparent must be a baptized Christian, fully practicing the faith of his/her denomination.
