Description

“The Christian Community Welcomes You With Great Joy!”

The sacrament of Baptism is essential to the life of the Church, and to the health and well-being of our Holy Family community. We all have a role to play in “welcoming with great joy” and are truly blessed that you have chosen to have your child baptized here with us.

In the waters of Baptism, your child will be bathed in grace and celebrated as a Child of God. What a joy it is to welcome a new child by birth or adoption! What an added joy to welcome a new Child of God through Baptism. Your family’s blessing becomes a blessing for the Church and for the world.

Your child begins the journey toward full initiation in the Catholic Church through the sacrament of Baptism. This journey of faith will continue as he/she later comes to the Lord’s Table at First Eucharist and celebrates the gifts of the Holy Spirit at Confirmation. Consequently, we encourage you to fully participate in all aspects of your child’s initiation process, beginning with Baptism. It has been designed with parents like you in mind; parents who are anxious to provide an environment that will foster your child’s developing faith in Christ Jesus.

For more information on the preparation process for having your child baptized at Holy Family, please contact:

Please note that we do not normally celebrate Baptisms during Lent since it is a season to spiritually prepare for the renewal of Baptismal promises at Easter.
