Baptism

Baptism

Our Baptisms are a community celebration welcoming a person into our Catholic faith community.

Baptism of infants and young children are celebrated at the weekend liturgy, either Saturday at the 5:00pm Mass or Sunday at 7:30am or 9:30am Masses.  Registration for Baptism must be made two months prior to Baptism date.  Please call the Parish Office at (920) 729-4560 to begin the registration process.

Requirements for Preparation:

1. Parent(s) must be registered parishioner(s) practicing their faith and must participate in the baptism preparation class.

2. Please choose two sponsors for your child.  According to the canon law of the Catholic Church, they are to be one male and one female.  At least one sponsor must be a practicing and confirmed Catholic and be living a life which befits the role to be undertaken.

3.  Your baby's baptism is a time for celebration and joy.   We want to help you plan and prepare for the baptism in the best possible way.  Baptism preparation classes are held on the 2nd Tuesday of the month in the evenings at the church.  Registration for classes is required by calling the Parish Office.
