The next Baptismal Preparation Classes for parents and godparents are scheduled for August 26th and September 2nd. Both sessions must be attended. Worshipping with us at Mass is a time to spiritually prepare both you and your family for the Sacrament of Baptism. Baptism preparation requires at least 3 months.

Parents who are registered in the parish desiring and planning baptism for their child are to come by the office to register for baptism classes, and to make an appointment with the pastor to begin baptism preparation. Only after this initial meeting with the pastor may a tentative baptism date be set.

Pre-baptism classes are required for both parents and Godparents. Godparents must have received the sacrament of Confirmation and, if married, married in the Roman Catholic Church and be receiving Holy Communion regularly. Only one Godparent is ecessary. If two (2), then male and female are required.

Please come by the office to register for baptism classes. Two consecutive classes are required.
