Baptism

Baptismal preparation for parents of infants and young children: Baptism is the beginning of the faith journey that leads to everlasting life with God, and is also the rite of welcome into the faith community. It is the first of the three sacraments of initiation, which are Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation.

Baptisms are scheduled at Mass on the first and third weekends of the month. The first weekend Baptism will take place at the 4:00 PM Mass and the third weekend at the 11:15 AM Mass. If for some reason another time must be arranged, or if a visiting clergy is requested, arrangements may be made with one of the clergy staff.

Attendance at a baptismal preparation program for parents and Godparents is a necessary requirement for infant baptism. Baptism classes will be offered approximately every six weeks in the coming year. The classes will be held on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 PM in the Cronin Center. Parents are asked to register to attend the class by contacting the parish office at 410-661-4888.
