Baptism

WELCOME TO HOLY REDEEMER BAPTISMS

Here at Holy Redeemer we are committed to the idea that Baptism is the first step in bring your child into the community faith.  It is our belief with in this community you and your child will be able to grow and build your understanding and devotion to the faith.  as such, we celebrate this beautiful sacrament at community ceremonies.

Parents wishing to have their children baptized at Holy Redeemer must first register for baptism. Due to the number of baptism requests we receive weekly, we process all new paperwork, as it arrives, on Thursdays.  As we schedule baptisms on a 'first come, first serve' system, it is best to turn in all required paperwork at least 6 weeks prior to the time frame you wish to schedule.  Thank you.

Please send all required forms in one email only to: Maria Falcon [email protected]

Please DO NOT fax paperwork.

COVID-19 MODIFICATIONS

​*Please Note: Holy Redeemer Catholic Church is slowly coming back, now that the Osceola County "Stay at Home" Order has been lifted somewhat.  We will be reaching out to all of the families who had their Baptismal ceremonies postponed, to reschedule as we reorganize to allow for new gathering policies. ​​

In an effort to keep everyone safe and still allow for the children to receive the Sacrament of Baptism, we have the following policies into place.

  • Only the parents, godparents and the child being baptized will be allowed to attend the ceremony.
  • All participants over the age of 2 will need to wear a mask.
  • Pictures will only be allowed at the Baptismal Font and outside the church.

While we understand your need to celebrate this beautiful day with your family and friends, our top priority is the safety of all within our parish.  We thank you for your understanding.
