Baptism

Baptism is the first of seven sacraments. It is the way in which original sin is removed and how a person becomes a member of the Catholic Church.

Baptisms are available during Mass on the 2nd weekend of each month or privately at any time arranged with the pastor.

Who can receive a Catholic baptism?

Anyone who has not already been baptized can receive the Sacrament of Baptism in the Catholic Church. Baptism leaves an indelible (permanent) mark on the soul and there is no way nor any reason that one could or should be re-baptized. There are no age restrictions for baptism; one cannot be too old or too young to be baptized.

Preparation for baptism

The manner of faith formation prior to the baptism of a child is a baptismal preparation session for parents. Please contact the parish office at (952) 835-7101 to sign-up for a session.
