THE SACRAMENT OF BAPTISM
The Sacrament of Baptism is the foundation of Sacramental life in the Church. In this Sacrament, we are cleansed of original sin, are reborn of water and the Holy Spirit, and are incorporated into the Body of Christ. Catechism of the Catholic Church 1213
Baptisms are the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month immediately following noon mass. Please call the parish office at (636) 227-7440 to schedue.
A sacramental preparation class is required. The class is held on the 3rd Monday of each month from 7pm-8pm in the Holy Infant Room. Please call the parish office at (636) 227-7440 to register.
Godparents: You as parents have the great privilege of choosing two Godparents for your child. The role of the Godparents is to be model Catholics in the life of your child. The Godparents will assist in the religious formation of your child as a good Catholic.
Canon Law states that Godparents need to be:
- Minimum 16 years of age
- A fully initiated Catholic (having received Baptism, Confirmation, and Holy Communion)
- A practicing Catholic (attends Sunday Mass each week, regularly goes to confession, believes the truths of the Catholic faith, and seeks to live their faith through prayer and works of charity)
- The Godparents cannot be the child’s own parents.
Choose wisely for your child…the Godparents take on a spiritual relationship with your child that will last for their entire lives!
Please contact the Parish Office at (636) 227-7440 for arrangements and class registration.
