Infants are baptized to welcome them into the Catholic faith and to free them from the original sin they were born with. Original sin isn’t a personal sin of the unborn, but a sin transmitted from generation to generation by birth. All men and women are born with original sin, and only Baptism can wash it away.
A baptism preparation session is offered to first-time parents on the first Thursday of each month at 7:30 PM in the Parish Center meeting room. Parents are required to attend, and may bring children to class. There is no charge for the baptism class, please call to register.
The Sacrament of Baptism is celebrated on the first three Sundays of the month after the 12:00 noon mass. Baptisms may be scheduled on the 4th Sunday of the month during the 12:00 noon liturgy (limited to 4 infants).
Attached below is our Baptism/Confirmation Sponsor Commitment Form. Parents, please read the form prayerfully. Please print all four pages, and ask sponsors to read pages one and two and complete either page three or four, returning it promptly to the office so that the Baptism can be scheduled.
Please contact the Parish Office at 937-433-1188 for available baptismal dates and to schedule a Baptism.
