Baptism is the first of the seven sacraments to be received in the Catholic Church. All of the other sacraments depend on it. Baptism occurs only one time and is not repeated; re-baptism is not possible. Please note that two months prior notice is required for Baptismal preparation. In order to prepare for the sacrament of Baptism, we ask that you contact the Parish Office to meet with a priest. During this meeting he will inform you of the preparation steps. This preparation includes pre-baptismal class for the parents and godparents, which may be taken after meeting with the priest. At least one of the parents must be registered as a member of St. Mary Parish.
