Baptism

“Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them; for to such belongs the kingdom of God” (Luke 18:16)

Please accept our warm CONGRATULATIONS to all parents who lead their children to Christian faith.

Parents:  All couples who plan to have their child baptized should notify the parish office at the beginning of the pregnancy and register for Baptism Preparation class held on second Tuesday of each month. Sponsors should be carefully selected and must be at least 16 years old, received the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, First Communion, and Confirmation), practicing their faith, not have any canonical impediments, and able to obtain a letter of eligibility from the parish where they are currently registered. Non-practicing, fallen away Catholics are not eligible for sponsorship, even if they are a close relative/friend. To schedule an appointment, call 757-583-0291.

Schedule: Baptisms are scheduled after the 5 pm Mass on Saturdays or the 10:30 am Mass on Sundays.
