Baptism

"Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you." — Matthew 28:19-20

Baptism is the first step of a person's initiation into the Catholic Community. In Baptism, the person is "annointed" to continue the mission started by Jesus, to live out the Gospel Message - which is a life-long journey -  and also becomes a member of God's Family, the Church. 

A parent is a child's first teacher and the formation of faith needs to begin in the home.  Together the parent(s) and parish community form a "partnership", supporting each other in the faith formation of the child. 

When new parents contact us requesting Baptism for their child, they are put in contact with Diana Sturgeon who is bilingual. The child's birth certificate is required.  Diana will then set up a time for the Baptism and arrange an informational session to better prepare the family for the Sacrament.  

BAPTISM DATE AVAILABILITY at our parish is usually (but is subject to change) ....
Spanish ─ 1st & 3rd Saturday of every month at 9:30 am with Dcn. Daniel Garcia or Fr. Juan Zarate,

English ─ Sundays at 9:30 am with approval first

IMPORTANT: Choose a date at least 2 months from time of registration to have a couple of opportunities to attend the Baptismal Prep Session (Plática Pre-Bautismal).  Baptismal Prep Sessions are usually held on the 3rd Thursday of every month in church at 6:00 pm for ALL parents and godparents. Persons with live-in partners, but not married in the Church are required to arrive earlier at 5:30 pm.
