Baptism

Guidelines:

Parents must be active Catholics and registered in the Parish for a minimum of four months before the Baptism date.

Parents must attend the pre-baptismal class. You may have one or two Godparents. At least one Godparent must be a practicing Catholic, baptized and confirmed.

The Godparents must participate in the pre-baptismal class or should have a letter from their parish stating that they have attended the pre-baptismal class and that they are practicing Catholics if they do not belong to our parish.

In order to baptize a baby whose parents belong to another parish, we need written permission from their parish priest.

The suggested donation to St. John the Baptist is $25, paid prior to the baptism. No one will be denied the Sacrament because of financial difficulties.
