“Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water in the word.” (CCC 1213)
Preparation for the Sacrament of Baptism is currently available online, to be completed from the comfort of your home.
Here are the Baptism Preparation Dates for the 2020-21 year:
The formation series Reborn: You, Your Child, and the Heart of Baptism is available online through Formed.org.
The coordinator for Children and Adult Faith Formation is available to meet with parents virtually to discuss the sacrament in detail.
Baptism Summer 2020
Baptisms are being celebrated after 5:00 Mass on Saturday and after the 11:00 Mass on Sunday.
At this time we are able to have 25% capacity in our church space.
Two pews reserved by the tabernacle for parents, godparents and family.
We will be using a small stand with a basin for the baptismal water up at the altar.
The water will be fresh and newly blessed during the service.
The congregation will be dismissed prior to the baptism starting.
Godparents play a significant role in your child’s life.
One godparent must be a practicing Catholic who has received the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation) in the Catholic Church and, if married, is validly married according to the norms of the Catholic Church. They will need to obtain a letter of good standing from their local parish.
Godparents should participate regularly in Sunday Mass and receive the Holy Eucharist.
They should be a witness of faith in Jesus Christ by the way they live in service and love to the people with whom they come in contact daily.
