April 24 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
On the last Monday of every month (occasionally, the date is changed due to holidays, etc.), St. Mary Student Parish holds a baptism class for new parents at 7:00 pm. Parents who are preparing to have their child baptized in the Catholic faith should pick up materials for the discussion from the Parish Office at least one week prior to the meeting they plan to attend. The baptism preparation packet contains articles and discussion questions for parents and godparents. It also contains a Baptism Registration form which must be filled out prior to class. At the discussion, parents (and godparents, if possible) will have an opportunity to ask questions about Catholic Baptism and schedule their baptism in the Church. If you’ve attended a baptism class before, we don’t require you to attend another.
Baptisms at St. Mary–In order to have a baptism here you either need to be registered here OR get permission from the church where you are registered. We do many baptisms on the weekends. Sunday baptisms are during the mass and are celebrated by the priest. Only one child may be baptized per mass on Sundays. Spanish Baptisms are USUALLY scheduled on the 1st and 3rd Sundays after the 2pm Spanish mass at 3:15. Three children can be baptized after the Spanish Mass. Saturday baptisms are private ceremonies usually celebrated by the deacon.
St. Mary Student Parish is grateful for the opportunity to celebrate the miracle of new life and welcome new members into our parish family through the Sacrament of Baptism.
