Infant Baptism Preparation

Infant Baptism Preparation

The Baptism Preparation program ...

... is designed to assist parents and godparents in their growing understanding of:

  • why the Catholic Faith community celebrates Baptism;
  • what the Sacrament of Baptism celebrates;
  • the responsibilities parents and godparents commit themselves to fulfill in celebrating Baptism with infants and young children;
  • and the role of the Faith Community in which Baptism is celebrated.

All parents and godparents will participate in a class and then a walk through with the priest or deacon prior to scheduling a baptism.
