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.  We will be scheduling the families for their Baptismal ceremonies on a 'first come, first serve' bascis, as the Baptismal Applications arrive, to allow for the new gathering policies. ​​

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

  • All participants over the age of 2 will need to wear a mask.
  • Brief pictures taking will be allowed at the Baptismal Font, the Alter and outside of the church.  Please be courteous and aware of those around you who would also like the same oppoutunity.
  • Only 10 people, outside of the parents, godparents and child to be baptized, will be allowed to attend the baptism.

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.


PRE-BAPTISMAL CLASSES

All parents and godparents are required to attend a Pre-Baptismal Seminar.  This class is meant to help you better understand and prepare for the sacrament of Baptism and your role as the child's first and primary source of faith and understanding.

Once all of the paperwork has been turned in and reviewed, the parents will be contacted to schedule the family's Pre-Baptismal Seminar.

Please contact Maria Falcon if you have any questions. [email protected]
