When:

Baptisms normally follow the Sunday Noon Mass, at 1:15 p.m. but other
times can be arranged. One of the priests or deacons of the parish
usually officiates at baptisms but if your family has a priest or
deacon who is special to you, feel free to invite him and will be
happy to accommodate.

Godparents:

According to Church Law, each child should have a male and female
godparent or sponsor.

At least one godparent must be a baptized and confirmed member of the
Catholic Church and at least 16 years of age. If two Catholics are not
able to serve as godparents, a baptized Christian at least 16 years of
age may act as sponsor.

Parents may not be godparents for their own child’s Baptism.

Offerings:

No specific offering is expected for a Baptism. If parents wish to
make an offering to the Church or the priest or deacon, it will be
gratefully accepted.


Scheduling:

Please contact the parish office to schedule the Baptism of your child.
