The Catholic Church and our faith community share in your joy as you bring your child to the Sacrament of Baptism. All Saints Church honors parents' and godparents' roles as a child's first educators. We are here to support you in the faith development and experience of the child and the whole family.
It is not easy to raise a child without help. Parents readily acknowledge that they need the love and prayers of the entire community.
It is always a joyous occasion when an infant is baptized into the Catholic Faith. Classes for parents and godparents for the child’s sacrament of baptism, will be available the first and third Tuesday evening of each month. Please make an appointment with Kathryn Ramous to discuss program expectations, complete paperwork for your child’s baptism and sign up for a class date. Baptisms will be scheduled on Saturdays at 5:00pm Vigil Mass, and at 9:00am and 11:00am Sunday Masses. We do not have baptisms during the season of Advent or Lent.
There are some times of the Church liturgical year when we refrain from celebrating Sacraments of Initiation, but we can still respond to your inquiries and schedule you for the Preparation sessions.
