cross background



Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit, and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission: "Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water in the word."   CCC 1213

Parents who wish to have their child baptized are asked to attend one baptism preparation class. Classes are held every other month throughout the year on the first Monday of the month.

Classes for 2017 are offered on the following dates:

  • January 9
  • March 6
  • May 1
  • July 10
  • September 11
  • November 6

Classes are held at 7:00pm in the parish office conference room.
