The Sacrament of Baptism is so much more than a magic moment that happens soon after a child is born. It is a commitment to a special way of life. A way of life that speaks in itself of a belief in Jesus Christ as Lord. The parents' faith leads to their child's Baptism. As parents, you are asked to sponsor/initiate your child, which calls you to present her/him for Baptism and then to walk the faith journey with him/her. This is a big, and sometimes, frightening responsibility to undertake, and as a Parish family we would like to help make it easier. Parents can call before the child is born or soon afterwards. You will be given the dates of the in-Parish preparation meetings scheduled, then you can schedule your child's Baptism.
Baptisms are celebrated every Sunday except during Advent and Lent. One Sunday of the month there is a celebration at 1:30 pm that is a Baptism ceremony without Mass. On other Sundays, Baptisms are scheduled at one Mass. Call Diane Miller at 248-698-3100 for more information.
