Baptisms

PROCEDURE FOR SCHEDULING A BAPTISM

  1. Parents must be registered parishioners. A registration form can be sent in the mail if you cannot pick it up at church.
  2. Parents only are required to take a baptismal class via zoom.
  3. Those who need to attend are: 
    baptisma. First time parents
    b. Parents who had a class at another Catholic Church within the last 2 years are encouraged to attend a class here, but not required.
    c. Parents should obtain documentation in writing from their former church and send to our front office ASAP.
  4. A form for Baptism Registration will be required of the parents after they are registered with the parish, and filled out with office staff over the phone or through email.


GODPARENTS

  1. Godparents must be at least 16 years old and have been confirmed.
  2. Only one godparent is required. If there are two godparents, it should be a man and a woman.
  3. If you have two godparents, one must be a baptized and practicing Catholic. The other may be a baptized and practicing Christian from a non-Catholic tradition. The role of godparent is to assist the parents in the spiritual development of the child.
  4. If your family tradition involves multiple godparents (more than two) they are welcome to be present with you. However, only two godparents will be entered on our church records.
  5. The Catholic godparents are required to obtain a Certificate of Eligibility from their home parish. Letters of eligibility need to be sent to the parish office 3 weeks prior to baptism.
