Scheduling a Baptism

Please contact the Parish Office to register for your child’s Baptism or if you have questions about the sacrament and the preparation process.  In preparation for Baptism, parents are asked to make the following arrangements:

  • When you register their child for the sacrament of Baptism, we will arrange for a time for you to meet with the Pastoral Associate (that’s Mark!) to review the necessary preparation. The date of the Baptism will be discussed at this meeting.

  • Select one or two godparents. At least one of the godparents must be a practicing Catholic.

  • You will be required to attend a Baptismal Preparation class prior to the Baptism and those dates will be discussed with Mark also.

  • Baptisms are always held during Mass, so within our four churches that would be:

    • Holy Ghost Church, Saturdays at 4:00 p.m.

    • Holy Family Church, Saturdays at 7:00 p.m.

    • St. Jude’s Church, Sundays at 8:30 a.m.

    • Immaculate Heart of Mary Church, Sundays at 10:30 a.m.

Getting Married?

All love comes from God, and all love reflects the love that God has for His creation. The Sacrament of Marriage is, first and foremost, a sign and symbol of this love! Marriage is a sacrament of the self-giving love which two people offer to each other. The love which a couple have for each other mirrors the love God has for them.

Please call us at least six months in advance of your wedding date.
