baptism of ChristThrough this sacrament the recipient becomes a member of the community of faith, the Church. It is the first of three sacraments of initiation. The other two being Confirmation and Eucharist. Baptisms are customarily celebrated one Sunday a month at the 10:30 am Mass, except during the season of Advent and the season of Lent (Ash Wednesday-Easter Sunday). Please contact the parish office to arrange for a visit or phone call from Baptismal preparation team who will assist in preparing you and the godparents for the sacrament and will also answer any questions you may have. This contact and preparation is best done before the birth of the child, at least two months in advance of the desired month for the celebration to allow sufficient time for preparation of the parents and godparents and liturgical preparation by the parish community. Please verify availability of the date of the sacrament before reserving a venue for the reception.

Non Baptized adults who would like to begin an inquiry into Catholicism are invited to enroll in an exploration process by contacting our Faith Formation Office.
