At Christ the King Parish we have many young growing families. We share in the joy of your newborn baby and want to assist you in preparing for your baby’s baptism.
(Remember that this baptismal preparation can begin even before the birth of your baby).
Preparing for your child's baptism
Baptism is the hopeful beginning of a lifetime of faith. In bringing your child for Baptism you are accepting the responsibility of providing for your child's spiritual needs as they grow and develop.
Parents are the primary teachers in providing a foundation of faith for their children. Our community is here to help and support you in this undertaking.
Contact Sr. Dominic
When you're ready to begin preparation for your child's baptism contact Sr. Dominic via the contact form below.
Practicing the Faith
Parents are to be practicing their faith through attendance at Mass and celebrating the sacraments. Or, if they are not practicing, they must be willing to begin doing so.
Selecting God Parents
In selecting Godparents, look for people who would be good examples of faith and who will take a long-term interest in your child. The Church requires one godparent who is a fully initiated Catholic (having received the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist). Parents have traditionally chosen two godparents but there are other options.
Godparents are required to participate in a Baptism preparation class. Classes are offered once a month.
Scheduling of the Baptism
The sacrament of Baptism is celebrated on Sunday mornings. During the 10:30am Mass we celebrate the Introductory Rite of the Baptism ceremony and the parents/infant are introduced. Following the Mass we continue with the Baptism and the rest of the ceremony.
