New parishioners are most welcome. Please come to the rectory to complete a Parish Registration Form and learn about our Parish. There are also forms in the Church entrances.
Baptisms Are Arranged for Four Families at a time one weekend a month with a Saturday and Sunday schedule.
Please contact the office to arrange a time.
Parents are required to attend a Baptismal Prep seminar (one night). We provide such a seminar along with Precious Blood Parish. Any Catholic parish's Baptismal Prep will due. Parents who've attended a Baptismal Prep seminar recently for another child do not have to repeat it.
The office will need to see and make a copy of the child's Birth Certificate to ensure the person requesting baptism is a valid guardian of the child.
The Church prefers two Baptized and Confirmed Catholics to be the Sponsors (godparents) at the baptismal liturgy. Sponsors need a letter of eligibility (a letter from their parish/pasor that states they are eligible to be a Sponsor). To get this letter, the Catholic should be a practicing member of the parish who attends the Sunday Mass at their parish. They need to contact their parish for that letter.
It is possible to have only one Sponsor, and if necessary, as a last resort, no Sponsors. A non-Catholic Christian can be a Sponsor if there is also a Catholic Sponsor. Non-Christians may not be Sponsors. Sponsors should be at least 16 years old (if younger, only with the pastor's permission, they may be a Sponsor if they've been Confirmed or in preparation for Confirmation).
Arrangements must be made at least one year prior to the marriage. Participation in a Pre-Cana Program or Engagement Encounter is required.
