Congratulations to your family! Whether you are preparing to Baptize your infant or you are an adult who has made the decision to be initiated into the faith, Holy Spirit Parish WELCOMES you and has a wonderful Baptismal preparation process for you.
Baptism is 1 of 3 Sacraments necessary for full initiation into the Catholic faith. Because the Catholic Church is a Christian denomination, if you have been baptized in another Christian tradition (e.g., Baptist, Lutheran, Methodist, etc.) you do not need to be re-baptized in the Catholic Church. All Christians share one common Baptism.
If you are seeking baptism for your child or for yourself, we do ask that you register as an official member of our parish so that we can fully support your faith journey. There are a couple of ways to register:
Baptism of infants is normally celebrated after the last Sunday Mass. It is essential for parents and godparents to participate in a Baptismal Preparation Class. These classes are typically held on the first Monday of the month at 7 p.m. in the Gathering Area of Church.
