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.
The Sacrament of Baptism is celebrated the first and third Saturday of the month
following the 4:00 p.m. Mass at 5:30 p.m.
The minimum expectation for those who seek baptism for their child is active participation in our parish by attending
Sunday Mass consistently and sacrificial tithing. Current parishioner registration and a
2023 Discipleship Renewal form must be on record with St. John Paul II Catholic Church prior to baptism.
Parents who desire baptism for their child must attend Fr. Farrar's Discipleship Presentation as part of the baptism preparation. Both parents are required to attend. All parents who desire baptism, regardless of prior baptism preparation classes attended, must participate in the Discipleship Presentation.
The presentation is from 4:00 - 5:30 p.m.
in the church office conference room or Social Hall.
These are the dates for the upcoming presentations in 2023:
No presentation in July.
Please call the church office or email to sign-up. Childcare is not provided.
We ask that you please make appropriate childcare arrangements if applicable.
