The Sacrament of Baptism for infants and children (up to the age of 7) is celebrated monthly at St. Patrick’s. For all inquiries about Baptismal Preparation for your child, please contact the Parish Office, and our Baptismal Preparation Team will assist you. If your child is 8 or older, you will be assisted by our Sacramental Preparation for Children team.
‘Go, therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you’ (Mt 28:19–20).

Baptism is birth into new life in Christ. In accordance with the Lord’s will, it is necessary for salvation, as the Church herself, which we enter by Baptism.
