Baptism

Baptism

The sacrament of Baptism is celebrated in English and Spanish at 10:00am, unless otherwise noted. Unfortunately we do not celebrate Baptisms during Lent and Advent (December).

Spanish Baptisms - 3rd Saturday of the month

English Baptisms - 4th Saturday of every other month

To register for Baptism, we require at least one parent to come to the office with a form of identification, along with the child’s original birth certificate.  Hospital records and copies of the birth certificate are not accepted. The fee is $50.00 (cash or credit), which includes the ceremony and the mandatory pre Baptismal class. Parents and Godparents are expected to attend the class before the Baptism (please see baptism dates and class calendar below). If the class is not fulfilled, the Baptism would need to be rescheduled. Please register early, we are limited to 40 children at a time. We apologize but we do not offer private Baptism.

Please note, the child must be between the ages of 0-6 years old. If your child is 7 years of age or older, please visit the Rite of Christian Initiation for Children (RCIC) page on the website or call Gerardo Gomez at the parish office (213) 749-8950.
