Holy Name Parish has a one-morning Baptism Preparation Session which takes place on the second Saturday of each month from 9:30AM to 11:00AM in the rectory. All parents and godparents are expected to attend this program.
The program helps prepare you for the Baptism of your child by explaining the Aacrament. It is also an opportunity to meet other families who are having their children baptized.
Members of the Baptism Team--parishioners who have young families--encourage introductions of members, discuss the symbols of Baptism, explain how Baptism is celebrated in our parish, and encourage the sharing of stories.
Parents and godparents may attend any session prior to the child’s Baptism. Of course, the babies are always welcome.
If you have been asked to be a godparent for a child who may be located in another parish or out-of-state, a letter can be provided as proof of attendance. Provide the following information and click submit.
