Baptism

Now forming Baptism Formation Teams

We are looking for parish members who are interested in being part of a team that prepares parents-to-be for the Sacrament of Baptism for their infant children.  Training will be provided.  
 
Are you seeking Baptism for your child?  Please call the Rectory for information on upcoming Baptism classes, dates for reception of the Sacrament, and answers to questions concerning the selection of godparents.  You may find the following information helpful when selecting a godparent: 
 
Church law requires that a candiate for Baptism for membership in the church community should be sponsored by a baptized and confirmed member of the Catholic Church who is willing and able to help the child develop and grow in the Catholic Faith.  There must be at least one sponsor or godparent.  In the case where there are two sponsors, one must be male and the other female.  The maximum number of sponsors is two.  The minimum age for a baptized and confirmed Catholic to be a sponsor is sixteen (16) years of age.  A baptized Christian non-Catholic may not be a sponsor, but may act as a Christian witness.  Non-baptized persons may not officially act as a sponsor or a witness to a Baptism of a child in the Catholic faith.
