Having Your Baby/Young Child Baptized


Are you interested in having your baby baptized into the Catholic faith?

Baptisms are held at St. Michael church on the second and third Sunday of the month, following the noon Mass. You can select the date of baptism at the time of the Baptism class or by contacting the Parish Office.

Baptism class is held on the third Tuesday every other month (February, April, June, August, October and December) at 7 PM in the Convent Living Room. Feel free to bring your questions and concerns for our Priest to answer. You will be asked to complete a form with pertinent information such as parent names, location of child’s birth, Godparents’ names, and the desired baptism date. Parents are asked to attend this class. Godparents are not required to attend, but they can if they desire. If you are a registered parishioner, please contact the Parish Office to register for a baptism class.

It is customary to have two godparents. At least one godparent must be

  • a Catholic who has been baptized, confirmed, and has received Holy Communion
  • at least 16 years of age
  • living the Catholic faith

A second, if not Catholic but from another Christian denomination, may serve as a "Christian witness" to the baptism along with the Catholic godparent.
