The Sacrament of Baptism

Infant-6 Years: Parents of children 6 years of age and under, or expectant parents who are registered parishioners and actively participating in the practice of Catholic faith and desire to have their child baptized need to attend one Baptism Preparation Class. Classes are offered every other month. 

Children 7-17: Children seven years of age to under 18 participate in a special process, the Rite of Christian Initiation Adapted for Children. This is a one to two-year process. 

Adults: Adults who seek baptism or profession of faith with the Catholic Church participate in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). The RCIA is a faith journey that includes the teachings of the Catholic Church while focusing on each individual’s formation in a life of discipleship and commitment to Jesus Christ.
