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.
Due to the current health environment, some aspects of baptism scheduling have changed. If you need to schedule a baptism, please email or leave a message at 913-747-9636.
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, if possible, the Godparents as well.
3) Set a Baptism date. Please call the Parish Office or email to schedule a Baptism date. The Rite of Baptism is celebrate generally on the third and fourth Sundays of each month following Divine Mercy's 10:30am Mass, as baptisms are celebrated in their church in Gardner, KS. If another day/time is needed, we will work with the Priest or Deacon's availability to determine an alternative date.
