We are happy to help you and your children in receiving the sacrament of Baptism. Please click the link below to register your child for baptism. A member of the parish staff will contact you upon receiving your submission.
Please note, you must be a registered parishioner to schedule a baptism at St. Mary’s.
Baptism Preparation Class
The baptism preparation class for parents of young children to be baptized is offered every second Sunday of the month after the 10:00am Mass. This pre-baptismal class is required. Please contact the office to register for the class.
A godparent must be at least 16 years of age, a practicing Catholic in good standing who has received Confirmation and First Communion, and, if married, be married within the Catholic Church. The godparent does not have to be present at the baptism. A proxy may stand in his or her place.
Parents of the child being baptized cannot be the child’s godparents. Grandparents or other family members may serve in this role. A non-Catholic who is baptized and is a practicing Christian may not be a sponsor. That person may participate as a Christian witness but does not replace the sponsor. A Catholic who is not practicing his or her faith cannot participate as a Christian witness or sponsor.
Only one godparent is required. If you would like to have two godparents, one must be male and the other must be female (i.e. there cannot be two males or two females).
At least two weeks before the date of the baptism, sponsors must submit a letter of eligibility from his or her parish indicating that he or she meets the above requirements. Parishioners of St. Mary should contact the parish office for this letter.
