You might ask, "Why do we have to come to a class just to have our baby baptized?" You attend childbirth classes before your baby is born. It seems only fitting that you attend a Baptism class before your child is born into the new life of Christ. We hope to encourage you, as parents to re-examine the meaning of your own faith. By offering this class, the parish is showing its love for you and its eagerness to support you as parents, as well as your children.
Baptism Preparation Class: is held on the second Wednesday of each month at 7:00 pm, in the Parish Meeting Room. Pre-registration is necessary. Forms are available at the Parish Office. Baptisms are celebrated during Mass or after 10:45 am on Sunday.
The Purpose of Marriage Preparation in the Catholic Church
"knowing that the marriage and family constitute one of the most precious of human values, the Church wishes to speak and offer her help...In a particular way, the Church addresses the young who are beginning their journey towards marriage and family life, for the purpose of presenting them with new horizons, helping them to discover the beauty and grandeur of the vocation to love and service of others"
MARRIAGE PREPRATION Couples preparing to marry within the church must contact the parish priest at least one year in advance of the proposed wedding date. Contact Fr. March at 609-625-2124.
