Infant Baptism

We hold the Baptism of Infants on the second Sunday of each month immediately following the 11:00 a.m. Mass.  There are no Baptisms during Lent.

In conjunction with Baptism, a Baptism class is held on the second Monday of each month from 7:00 - 8:15 p.m. in the Family Center at the parish.   It is a one time meeting prior to the celebration of Infant Baptism.  You would likely attend the class just prior to the Baptism date that you have chosen, but exceptions can be made.  We require that both parents attend the Baptism class.  If you have attended this Baptism class within the last two years then you are exempt from retaking the class.   

Note: due to clergy schedules, changes may occur to class and Baptism dates.  Please call the parish office to verify dates and to register for both class and Baptism dates.


Any questions, please call Shelley Brown at the Parish Office at (231) 947-4620 ext. 252.
