Baptism of Small Children

Your decision to have your child baptized is a major step for you as parents, for you have accepted the joy and challenge of raising your child Catholic. As one way of supporting you, we present a Baptism Class for parents. If this is your first child to be baptized, we ask that you register for a class with Lorianne Aubut.

Baptism of Older Children

If your child is old enough to speak and understand the basics of Baptism, we will spend a little extra time together. In addition to the Baptism class for parents, we will work with you so that your child is appropriately prepared to be comfortable during the celebration.

Baptism of Teens and Adults

Older teens and adults seeking Baptism are invited to the RCIA process (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults). RCIA provides a format for discerning God’s call to Catholicism and responding to it with an open heart.
