New and expecting parents are required to attend one baptism preparation session before scheduling their child’s Sacrament of Baptism. All parents bringing a child for baptism are invited to participate in a session.

These sessions not only review the Rite of Baptism, but also engage parents in exploring how they can raise their children in the practice of the Catholic faith.

Sessions are offered every other month.

 Baptism Preparation Sessions:      6:30-8 p.m.

Thursdays, Feb 2, April 6, June 1
