The Catholic Church welcomes new members through the Sacrament of Baptism. For infants and young children, the rite of baptism is incorporated into the Sunday liturgy. In special circumstances, separate arrangements may be made. Parents must complete a baptismal registration form and submit it to the parish office. Parents and godparents are required to complete a brief course of preparation prior to the baptismal rite. Contact the parish office for additional details.
Teenagers may prepare for the sacrament through participation in the parish’s religious education program. Contact the parish office for details.
Adults wishing to become members of the Church are required to complete the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) program. Baptism of adults is usually included in the Easter liturgy.
