Baptisms

Did you just welcome a new little one to your family?

Are you expecting a baby or in the process of adoption?

We are pleased to help you prepare for your child’s baptism!

Baptisms take place during all masses on the third full weekend of most months.  Private baptisms may be an option for families with health concerns or special circumstances.

Baptism weekends for the remainder of 2022 are:

  • Oct 15 & 16
  • Nov 19 & 20

Here is some basic information about celebrating baptism at St. James…

  • Parents should be registered members of St. James.
  • First-time parents and those new to St. James are required to participate in a pre-baptism class that discusses the tradition & symbols of the sacrament and the parental duty to raise their child in the practice of the faith, as well as the actual rite of baptism.
  • Pre-baptism classes are offered on the first Sunday of the month at 11:45am or by appointment as needed.  These sessions meet in the Great Room off the Gathering Space.  Upcoming session dates for 2022 are Oct 2nd, Nov 6th and Dec 4th.
  • Preparation classes are not required for parents who have already baptized a child at St. James.  However, parents are always welcome to join us for a refresher!
