Baptism of Children at St. Francis Xavier Church
Baptism Schedule – 2015 and 2016
On the dates listed below, there will be a communal Baptismal Service on Saturday at 10:30 a.m. in the main church. It is the full baptism liturgy with each family gathered at the font individually for the baptism itself. There is no common baptism during Lent.
Private baptisms are possible if you bring your own priest, or if one of the resident priests is free to preside. Please contact Fr. Peter. Note, however: “Baptism should not be celebrated more than once on the same day in the same church.” If apart from the common celebration several ask for baptism on a single day, those baptisms too must be done together even if a private baptism is sought.
Baptism Class is held for parents and sponsors usually on the first Saturday of the month at 10:30 am. Contact Dr. Luz Marina Diaz [firstname.lastname@example.org] to make an appointment.
Please, fill out the Baptism Form indicating the baptism service date you select (see schedule below) and bring or send it to our offices along with a copy of your child or children’s birth certificate.
