Amen, amen, I say to you, no one can enter the kingdom of God without being born of water and Spirit. (John 3:5)
When are baptisms?
How do I set up a baptism?
Do I need to take a class?
Do God-parents have to be Catholic?
It is in Baptism that we enter into a covenantal relationship with God through Jesus Christ and are welcomed into the community of believers. Parents must be members of St. Stephen's Parish. One Godparent must be a confirmed, practicing Catholic. Both must be Christian and at least 16 years old. Parents and Godparents must attend a Baptismal Preparation Session prior to the infant's Baptism. Sessions are held on the first Monday of the month during the evening at 7 p.m. in the Church. Baptisms are celebrated every Sunday at 1:45 pm.
