Baptisms of infants/children before age 7 are celebrated the third Sunday of each month during the Masses (4:30 PM Saturday, 9 & 11:00 AM Sunday). There are no baptisms during Lent. Parents are required to attend a preparation program once before the baptism of their children. The program is offered the first Sunday of the month. Please meet the presenting couple at the back of church for the 11:00 AM Mass. The class follows Mass immediately and ends at 1:30PM. Please contact the parish office, 531-3164, to schedule a Baptism and to register for the class.
Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation
Children in Nativity Parish prepare for these sacraments either in the religion classes of Nativity School or in the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, BOW, and junior high religion programs. Parents attend a preparation meeting to assist their child in understanding more deeply the beauty and importance of the sacrament in their child’s life.
