Baptism makes one a member of the body of Christ and incorporates one into the Church, sharing in its mission. The principal effects of Baptism are purification from sins and a new birth in the Holy Spirit. The Catholic Church baptizes all ages. For infants the Church requires formation and catechesis for parents in preparation for the baptism of their children. Only one class is required. Adolescents and adults are prepared for Baptism through a process called the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation). Please call the church office if you or your child needs to be baptized.
First and third Sundays of the month at 2pm or by appointment. Attendance at a preparation class is required. The class is held on the second Tuesday of the month at 7pm in the Parish Center. Parents should be registered in the parish. Godparents must be at least 16 years old and baptized, confirmed, practicing Catholics.
