At Baptism, infants and children up to six years of age are initiated into the Christian community and begin a life-long journey as a committed disciple of Christ. Since the infant or small child cannot make this commitment on their own, the parent who requests Baptism for their child states that they wish to transmit the faith in which they believe and live to their child. Parents wishing to have their infant or child baptized are required to complete Baptism preparation. This gives parents an opportunity to reflect on their relationship with Christ, the meaning of Baptism and have questions answered concerning the Sacrament and the ceremony.
Parents, please contact the parish office to begin preparing for your child’s Baptism. Once Baptism preparation is complete, parents may arrange Baptism on a date in alignment with our schedule.
For information about scheduling or attending a Baptism class please contact Caiti Schimitz at firstname.lastname@example.org.
