Sacraments



Baptism

Attendance at two baptismal preparation sessions are required before Baptism can be scheduled. Preparation may begin any time during pregnancy.

Choosing a Godparent(s) for your child is an important duty for parents. Godparents are entrusted with the responsibility (along with parents) of raising the child in the Catholic faith; passing on the heritage of our faith. Choose Godparent(s) who will be a real and long-lasting help in the Catholic-Christian formation of your child. At least one Godparent should be over the age of 16, Confirmed in the Catholic faith and currently practicing their faith, including weekly mass attendance.  Others must be baptized in a Christian faith.

To register for the classes and schedule a Baptism, please call Sandra Gill at 410-676-5119 ext. 110 or email:  Sandra.Gill@archbalt.org
