Baptism

Sacrament of Baptism

Congratulations on the recent or upcoming birth of your new baby! The parish of Annunciation BVM Church rejoices in this wonderful new life. We welcome the opportunity to assist you in accepting God's call to be Christian parents and to aid in your preparation for the celebration of your child's baptism. Please call or e-mail the parish office to begin to make arrangements and provide all necessary documentation for your child's Baptism.

Parents whose first child is to be baptized must attend a Pre- Baptism class. The class is scheduled on the third Thursday of the month at 7:00 P.M. in the school library. Baptisms take place on the fourth Sunday of each month at 11:00 A.M.

Guidelines for Choosing Godparents
Godparents act as representatives of the Church in welcoming the newly baptized, and more importantly, they act as models of Christian living for the newly baptized. They assist the parents in passing on the faith and they assist the baptized in living out the faith. Choosing godparents is an important decision.For information and requirements on choosing godparents, click here.
