Baptism

Congratulations on the Birth of your child!

We rejoice with you and look forward to welcoming your little one into the Family of God and the communion of the Holy Catholic Church. Baptisms are held on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month at 2:00 pm (pre-registration is required).

Information for First Time Parents

If you have never had a child baptized in the Catholic church, you will need to attend a mandatory baptism class offered on the 2nd Sunday of each month at 2:00 pm. Both parents must attend the class. For more information call the parish office.

In order to schedule a baptism, please complete the following steps:

Download a St Michael Baptism Registration Form and the Godparent Sponsor Letter for each godparent to fill out and have signed by their parish priest.

Type directly into the form, save it, and then attach it to an email to the parish office to return it.

Give the sponsor letters to your godparents and ask them to take them to their parish pastor for him to sign & stamp and then return to us.

Once all of the paperwork is received, you may then contact the parish office to choose a date.
