Born into faith, and baptized in Christ.

In Baptism, Spiritual Life begins as a person is brought into communion with the church, and becomes one with Christ.

Spiritual renewal in Baptism is available to all people, of all ages and walks of life; and once the sacrament takes place; the catechum is forever baptized in Christ.

What Do I Need to Become a Godparent?

The role of Godparent at Baptism is more than merely ceremonial. Often times in the past, we could say that the Church had this or that requirement. However, the first question is not whether or not the Church will permit me to be a Godparent or Sponsor, but rather whether or not I can allow myself to be one.

As Godparents, we must ask ourselves if our integrity allows us to stand at the Altar and make a public profession that the faith we speak in word is also a faith in practice!

To become a Godparent, please download the parish Certificate of Eligibility and guidelines and submit the completed form to the parish office.

How Do I Arrange a Baptism?

You should begin the process at least 2 months before the desired time for the Baptism. To begin the process, please contact Sr. Eileen by email.

Baptisms take place on scheduled Sunday afternoons, generally the first and third Sunday of the month, at 12:30PM in the church, following the 11:30 Mass. Families are invited to attend the 11:30 Mass prior to the celebration of the Sacrament of Baptism if you wish.

Classes for 1st time parents are offered once a month. If this is your first child being baptized you are required to attend this class. Registration for class is required. Access the Schedule for Pre-Baptism Classes here, then please contact Sr. Eileen by email. with your chosen date to attend.
