Baptism Preparation: Baptism is a sacrament in the Church and requires that one of the parents must be baptized as Catholic and both must agree to raise the child in the Catholic Faith. The process includes naming sponsors that will care for the faith health of the child should something happen to the parents. Begin by contacting the Parish Offices to make an appointment and set the date for the Baptism, obtain a Baptismal request form, and bring the completed form with you to the meeting.
Parents are expected to be involved in a Baptismal in-service before Baptism of each child. Group In-service sessions are offered 3 to 4 times a year; upcoming sessions are from 3-5 pm on XXXXX and from 6:30-8:30 pm on XXXXX in the Sacred Heart Parish Center Dining Room. If possible, please call the parish office (507) 835-1222 to pre-register.
