All couples presenting a child/children for Baptism are encouraged to attend a Baptism Sign Up on Zoom for initial information intake. Please see date listed above. Parents presenting for Baptism will also attend a Baptism Catechisis class on Zoom.
The Baptism Celebration
The Celebration of the Ceremony will take place on Sunday, at 11:30 am. The child should be brought to the church in a “one-zee” or another simple outfit. The child will be clothed during the celebration of the Sacrament after the pouring of the water. It is appropriate that the mother and godmother cloth the baby in the white Christening garment.
