Baptism Preparation Class is held on select Tuesday evenings, by appointment. The class is about an hour long and completed in a single session. Students must pre-register for the class; please complete the contact form below, and be sure to include your email address. You may also contact the parish process to begin registration. You will be provided a baptism registration form; please fill completely prior to attending class. Be sure to have the name of the child, date of birth, city of birth, parents, godparents, and addresses completed. If you also need a parish registration form, please let us know. it is customary for the parents or godparents to be registered parishioners at the parish of the baptism.
It is strongly recommended that parents-to-be attend the class PRIOR to the child’s arrival. It is also strongly recommended that parents provide godparents with as much advance notice as possible. Godparents are encouraged to attend the prep class with the parents if possible!
At least one of the parents, as well as godparents, must be actively practicing Catholic, and regularly attending Sunday Mass. It is customary to have two godparents (godmother and godfather). Please review this checklist:
- The parents must either be registered members of St. Catherine’s or have permission in writing from their pastor for the baptism to take place outside their regular parish.
- Godparents – may take the St Catherine class if it is the parents’ parish OR the godparent(s)parish (ie as registered parishioners).
- Complete parish registration (if necessary) and register and attend baptismal preparation class.
- Scheduling of the baptism – please provide us with requested baptism dates to help complete the scheduling.
