St. Francis de Sales offers a preparation process to prepare parents to help parents better understand the commitment involved with baptizing their child and the liturgical celebration as well as engaging parents in discussion on what Christian parenting entails. These session are offered once a month from February through November each year on the first Tuesday of each month from 5:45 pm to 8:30 pm. ** New ** You need to pre-register for the session you will be attending. We begin in the gathering space which is the area in front of the church. Upon arrival you will be greeted and invited to fill out a baptism registration form.
Godparents play a vital role in the faith of a child. A godparent is a fully initiated Catholic who is in good standing with the church and is over the age of 16. The godparent(s) represents the Catholic Church at Baptism and serves as a role model throughout the child’s life by living a fully Christian life. Sponsors are not required to attend baptism session, but we always encourage them to do so. As parents we would like our child's sponsor to be knowledgeable of their responsibilities.
