Start first by calling the parish office. All parishioners wanting their child baptized must first be a registered parishioner. We offer sessions with parents to learn more about this important Sacrament. If you have questions, please contact Fr. Arthur Mattox. The Parish Office can then schedule a date and time with you. Some important notes:
- Your child’s baptismal name should be preferably a saint’s name. If the child’s first name is not a saint name, be sure that the middle name is a saint name.
- There are many secular names that are not acceptable for baptism — those that are foreign to Christian sentiment such as seasons of the year, days of the week, and obviously those that conflict with the Christian faith.
- The child’s Godparents must consist of at least one baptized and confirmed Catholic; the other may be a baptized Christian.
- The child’s Godparents must be one man and one woman.
