Baptism

Schedule a Baptism

We are very happy to assist you and your children in receiving this amazing and life-changing sacrament.   The Sacrament of Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit and the door which gives access to the other sacraments.  Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons of God; we become members of Christ, and we are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission.

Baptism are held at 2:00 pm in the Church on the first and third Sunday of each month.   To register your child for a baptism, please review the requirements below.

Please note, you must be a registered parishioner to schedule a baptism at Nativity.
