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 catechumenate 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?

Due to Covid-19 restrictions and guidelines, Baptisms will be limited to one baby/family at a time. Baptisms will take place on Sunday afternoons at 1:00; 2:00 and 3:00. Masks must be worn by all participants over the age of 5. State guidelines allow gatherings of up to 25 people. These guidelines may be changed or amended as the state health directives evolve. Please contact Sr. Eileen for availability.

Classes for 1st time parents are being offered on ZOOM due to Covid-19 distancing considerations. Access the Schedule for Pre-Baptism Classes here.
