Baptism is a precious gift given by God through the Church, one which parents have the privilege to offer to their children. It is a gift meant to last a lifetime and beyond. The Sacrament of Baptism opens the door to new life by making us part of Christ and His Church. It is the entry into a Catholic-Christian community and a life of faith in Jesus Christ. Baptism for infants requires advance preparation of at least two months, which includes a Baptism Preparation Class. Baptism for teenagers and adults is conducted through our RCIA program.
Baptisms are held in English the fourth Saturday of most months. Pre-baptismal instruction is required.

Baptism, First Communion, and Confirmation
(Age 8 and over)
Are you a Catholic who has been baptized, but has never received Eucharist and/or Confirmation? Are you from another faith, but looking to deepen your relationship with Christ? Maybe you have never been particularly religious, but now your Spirit is seeking somewhere to find rest. The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is an ongoing conversion experience that leads Seekers to a deeper understanding and love of Jesus Christ through the Catholic faith.
