“I baptize you in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.”
Baptism is seen as the starting point in the journey of faith for infants. It is also an opportunity for the parents, godparents, family members and the entire parish community to reflect upon the practice of one’s faith being lived out.
Typically the celebration takes place in the context of weekend liturgy a few weeks after the birth of the child. While Church law dictates that only one godparent needs to be an active, practicing Catholic, selection of individuals who value the gift of faith should always be given extreme significance.
Baptisms may be scheduled by contacting the parish office. Adults who wish to receive the Sacrament of Baptism usually participate in the “Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults” that is offered here at the parish throughout the year.
