Sacraments

Sacrament of Baptism

Baptism

The Sacrament of Baptism is held the second Sunday of each month during the 10:30 am Mass. The Tuesday evening before the Baptism there is an instruction class held in the church hall at 7:00 pm for parents and sponsors. A child must have at least one sponsor. If the child has only one sponsor, that person must be a worshiping Catholic and must also be confirmed. If the child has two sponsors, one must be a man and one a woman, thus a Godmother and Godfather. If both sponsors are Catholic, the same requirements for eligibility for one sponsor hold for two. However one sponsor may be a non-Catholic Christian and they will be recorded as a Christian Witness.

Please call for registration information. 508-378-4207.
