Sacraments

Baptism

Baptisms of infants/children before age 7 are celebrated AFTER the 11:00 am Mass on the first and third Sundays of the month, but DURING the Mass on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the Mass. The date is set with the Parish Office and with the approval of the celebrant. There are no baptisms during Lent. 

Preparation

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 AM Mass. The class follows Mass immediately and ends at 1:30PM. Please contact the parish office, (513)531-3164, to schedule a Baptism and to register for the class.
