Then Peter said to them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

- Acts 2:38

Baptism for Infants and Young Children

Yes, we would love to baptize your child! Be sure to contact us at least one month before you'd like the baptism to take place. Please use the Contact section of this page to contact the parish where you'd like the baptism to take place.

Baptismal preparation will vary depending on conditions (such as parish involvement), but some type of preparation is always required. If you are coming in from out of town for this baptism, we'll need a letter from your local parish giving us permission to celebrate the baptism.

We generally celebrate Baptisms during a weekend Mass. Exceptions may be made for very good reasons.

Baptism for Adults

Are you an adult who is unbaptized and would like to enter the Catholic Church? We would love to work with you as you prepare for this big decision and great celebration. Please contact Fr. Daniel at Our Lady of the Assumption to begin.
