School-Age Baptism

In Grades 2 and up, children who were never baptized are prepared for baptism. At least one parent should be Catholic (or entering the Church through RCIA during Easter 2020) and both parents should agree to the baptism. Children are prepared for First Eucharist as well.
If a child is Grade 6 or higher, they should register for Confirmation as well.
For School-Age Baptism (which includes First Eucharist), the parish requests a $40 registration fee (if the family is financially able). 
When registering for any combination of sacraments, the requested fee is $50 total.

Registration for School-Age Baptism is now closed.
