"Baptism makes us members of the Body of Christ [and] incorporates us into the Church. From the baptismal fonts is born the one People of God of the New Covenant, which transcends all the natural or human limits of nations, cultures, races, and sexes: 'For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body.'(1 Cor 12:13)" ~Catechism of the Catholic Church - 1267

It has been the tradition of the church to celebrate Baptisms on Sunday. Baptism is the first of the initiation sacraments of the church and has the most symbols associated with it (name, cross, white garment, candle, chrism, water, litany of the saints, word of God, creed, etc.). The church has encouraged us to celebrate the sacrament with a community rather than celebrate it privately. Thus we schedule Baptisms on the weekend either after Mass or during one of the weekend Masses. To schedule a Baptism, contact the parish office at 763-428-2828.

Godparent(s) Requirements:
Must have at least one practicing Catholic - male or female. No more than two godparents - one male, one female. Non-Catholic participant/mentor that is part of the baptismal ceremony will be noted as a witness in the baptismal records. All parents are required to attend a Baptism Preparation Class prior to their first child’s
baptism. Please call the parish office at 763-428-2828 to register. If your child is older than 5 years old, our parish provides special sessions to enable the family to fully participate in the sacrament.
