Baptism

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. Once completed, either mail the form to the Parish Office (16680 S Lind Rd, Olathe KS 66062) or scan/email to office@jp2kc.org.  Once Godparents are selected, they will need to complete the Godparent Eligibility Form and return the form to the parish office at least 2 weeks prior to the Baptism.

2) Sign-up for a Baptism Prep Class. If a class has not been taken within the past 2 years, or if the parents have not completed a baptism class at JP2, a class is required prior to a Baptism being celebrated. Please call the Parish Office or email office@jp2kc.org 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 office@jp2kc.org to schedule a Baptism date.  The Rite of Baptism is celebrated by the Priest or Deacon.
