Baptism

Baptism

“Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20

It all starts with Baptism. Whether infant or adult, Baptism marks your entry into the Catholic Church. We look forward to welcoming you or your child into the family of God.

Infant Baptisms are celebrated at 1:15 p.m. on Sundays. Parents are required to attend a Baptismal preparation session, which is offered on the second Tuesday of every month at 7 p.m. Contact the Rectory to sign up. Baptisms must be scheduled at least three weeks in advance.

Adults are welcomed into the Church through Baptism upon completion of their preparation which generally is through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). RCIA consists of sessions beginning in September, culminating in the administration of Baptism at the Easter vigil.
