The Sacrament of Baptism is celebrated in the Divine Mercy Chapel on the second and fourth Sundays of each month following the 9:00 AM Mass. Parents must be registered and attending members of the parish. Arrangements are to be made beforehand by calling the parish office.
Together with the parents, godparents present the infant for Baptism. Godparents, one male and one female, are to help the baptized child lead a Catholic Christian life and to fulfill faithfully the obligations connected with it.
Qualifications for Godparents/Sponsor
To qualify to be a godparent/sponsor, a person MUST:
- be at least 16 years of age and have received the Sacraments of Eucharist and Confirmation.
- be a practicing Catholic (i.e. weekly attendance at Mass, valid marriage).
Godparents/Sponsor Certificate of Eligibility
Godparents sponsors not from this parish must get a letter from their parish attesting to the fact that they qualify to be a godparent/sponsor.
One godparent in Baptism may be a non-Catholic, but this godparent must be a practicing member of a Christian Church. This person would be considered a Christian Witness.
