Sacraments

BAPTISMS

The Sacrament of Baptism is celebrated on the third Sunday of each month at 12:00 p.m., or during a regularly scheduled mass if requested. You must be registered in the parish before arranging for Baptism. A Baptism preparation class is required for those parents who have not attended a class within the last two years. These can and should be taken prior to the birth of the child. These instructions are held quarterly on the second Sunday of January, April, July and October at 12:00 p.m. in Meeting Room #2. Instruction may also be taken with our Pastoral Associate for Religious Education, Joshua Mocek, if the circumstances require it. In the instruction class, a priest or deacon will explain the various elements of the celebration as well as the responsibilities of the parents and godparents. For the baptism of older children please ask for Mr. Joshua Mocek when contact the church office. Please contact the church office to make arrangements.
