Baptism

Baptism: Entering New Waters

The Sacrament of Baptism is the first step in a lifelong journey of commitment and spiritual growth. Whether we are baptized as infants, youth or adults — Baptism is the Church’s way of welcoming new members into the community.

Infants & Children

Infants and children under age 7 are baptized individually or as a group on Sundays before the community, as part of a regularly scheduled Mass.

Youth & Adult

Individuals over age 7 are baptized before the community at the Easter Vigil Mass – the Saturday night before Easter. Preparation classes begin each fall in September.
