baptismInfant Baptism
          • 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month.
          • One month's notice and preparation is required.
            • Baptism information. (esp if your are from outside of our Parish) We encourage you to have your child baptized in the parish in which you live—because baptism is about BELONGING to a faith community, (your faith community). However, your child is welcome to be baptized in this parish, if you have a letter from your parish priest stating that you have spoken with him & have fulfilled all the conditions required by your home parish for the baptism of your child. Together, we can make ur child’s baptism a joy-filled & spiritually enriching experience as you begin her/his faith journey. Above all, let us remember: “Baptism is a tremendous privilege because  baptism makes ur child a child of God & a member of the Body of Christ”. Isn’t baptism all about the challenge to grow in faith?  Otherwise it would be a bit like buying a ticket and not board the train to reach our destination.
