BAPTISM

Congratulations! Perhaps your baby has just recently been born, or perhaps he or she has already been in this world for some time. Or maybe you are still awaiting the blessed event. Whatever the case, we hope that preparing for your child’s baptism will enrich your experience of parenthood and help you to understand the rich meaning of the celebration of your child’s baptism.

The parish baptismal preparation program will help you to prepare for the baptism, to appreciate the full meaning of the words, gestures, and signs of the liturgy, and to understand the commitment you are making when you have your child baptized. We are so excited to be able to journey with you in this process!

Please Note:

In the first part of the Baptism session we will talk about our own journey of faith, why we want our children baptized, the sacrament of baptism, tools for the journey and the Paschal Mystery. The second part of the session will be about 30 minutes. At this time we will review the symbols of baptism, the rite itself and we’ll have a mini-rehearsal.
