Baptism of Children

Baptism is the first sacrament of initiation and the prerequisite for all other sacraments. Through baptism, people are forgiven of all their sins, made children of God, and made members of His Church.

2) Parents must attend a baptismal preparation meeting. The Baptismal Preparation Meeting is held at St. Michael’s Church once a month on a Monday evening at 7:30 p.m.  The meeting is in English and is approximately 1 hour long.  You do not need to sign up in advance.  Godparents are encouraged, but not required, to attend the meeting.   Spanish speakers may contact Deacon Alberto  for a private meeting if they are uncomfortable attending the meeting in English.

3) At the meeting, you may select the date of your baptism.  You may also select your date by calling the Parish office.  Baptisms are celebrated twice a month on Sundays at 2pm.    One celebration each month is in English, the other in Spanish.

Baptism for Children over 7 years of Age

Children who are in Grade 3 or older must first receive some instruction before baptism.   The length and nature of the instruction depends upon the specific needs of each child.  At the conclusion of the preparation,  the children will receive all three sacraments of initiation – Baptism, Confirmation and First Holy Communion – at a Sunday Mass.   Please contact  Father Jason to discuss your situation.
