Baptism is an initiation into the Paschal Mystery and the Christian community of faith in God, who is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Baptisms take place during the regular scheduled Masses. For emergencies or exceptional circumstances other arrangements will be considered.
*NOTE: Dates for Baptisms are only booked after meeting with the priest.
Requirements for Baptism:
