The Sacrament of Baptism ushers us into the divine life, cleanses us from sin, and initiates us as members of the Christian community. It is the foundation for the sacramental life.
Please follow the below steps to schedule your child's Baptism.
1) Fill out the Baptism Registration Form located below. Review the Godparents Requirement Form prior to selecting Godparents. Either mail the form to the Parish Office (16680 S Lind Rd, Olathe KS 66062) or scan/email to email@example.com. Once Godparents are selected, they will need to complete the Godparent Eligibility Form.
2) Sign-up for a Baptism Prep Class. If a class has not been taken within the past 2 years, a class is required prior to a Baptism being celebrated. Please call the Parish Office or email to sign-up for a class. It is suggested that both parents attend and the Godparents are also encouraged to attend.
3) Set a Baptism date. Please call the Parish Office or email to schedule a Baptism date. The Rite of Baptism is celebrated by the Priest or Deacon generally on the third and fourth Sundays of each month at Divine Mercy in Gardner, KS. If another day/time is needed, we will work with the Priest or Deacon's availability to determine an alternative date.
