This sacrament of initiation and welcome into our faith-community may be celebrated during a weekend Mass or at 1:00 p.m. on the second and fourth Sunday of the month. For parents anticipating the birth and baptism of their first child, Pre-baptismal Class is held on the second Sunday of every other month (January, March, May, July, September and November) at 1:00 p.m. in the Parish Center. It is recommended that you attend this class prior to your child's birth. Call the parish office to register for the class.
Choosing the Godparents for your child is more than an honor for a close friend or family member, prayerfully consider who will assist you and your spouse in mentoring the Catholic faith for your child. Once you choose your Godparents, you can give the Sponsorship Certificates to your Godparents who should sign it, get it verified by the parish they belong to, and return it to the parish office. Please have your Godparents return the sponsorship certificate forms as soon as possible once you've confirmed your date.
