Join our Baptism Team:
To ensure the growth of our Catholic Christian Faith and Tradition, this ministry conducts Pre-Baptismal Preparation with the goal of catechizing couples and preparing them for their child’s Baptism. The faith that is given a child is a gift of God and experienced through the Parents and the community.  Infant Baptism can only be significant if Parents, aided by Godparents, guide and expose the child to experience in faith the presence of the Holy Trinity as an important, alive and meaningful God in their life.
This ministry is seeking 1 to 2 more couples to join our Ministry.  Once a month one couple leads a weeknight baptism class (2NDThursday of the month) for Parents and GodParents that is 90 minutes to 2 hours long. (Materials are provided). Details on the sacrament of Baptism and the ceremony are presented along with group discussions on specific ways the Parents and GodParents will support their child’s faith journey.   During the monthly Baptism ceremony (4th Sunday of each month), one couple checks in the families, hands out baptismal certificates, and assists the celebrant (Priest) with some of the readings and altar responsibilities such as lighting candles, moving oil etc.  Months are rotated between the couples in the ministry with monthly time commitments of one to two hours.  Depending on the number of couples, each couple would volunteer between 3 to 6 months per year.
Maybe God is calling you to be a member of our team to help teach, inspire and prepare families so that their children can enter our Church and become members of the Body of Christ.
