Our community helps parents prepare for the baptism of infants or young children by helping parents to understand their role in their child’s spiritual life and growth, and by supporting them in undertaking this task. Parents must understand clearly the Christian meaning of baptism, and must choose freely to celebrate the sacrament as being a time of growth in their own relationship with God and the Christian community.
During this meeting, parents will reflect on the meaning of baptism. Do we take seriously the promises made in the baptism liturgy? How are we living our lives as good Catholic Christians and how can we improve? We are then able to arrange a date for preparation and baptism. Please bring a copy of your child’s birth certificate with you to this meeting. Baptisms are scheduled monthly according to the liturgical year and are generally celebrated during the liturgy. There is no fee for baptism. For additional information or to begin the process and schedule a baptismal interview please contact Diane Orban
