Baptism is our birth as Christians, making us members of Christ: “We were all baptized into one Body... you are the Body of Christ and individually parts of it.” Though Baptism confers great gifts, it’s not a final stage in God’s generosity towards us - only a beginning. Thank you for deciding to have your child baptized, and initiating your child’s journey through life of faith.
Since Baptism is the sacrament of entry into the Church, it’s important that we celebrate this sacrament before the gathered community. Therefore, baptisms at Blessed Sacrament are celebrated at Sunday Mass, typically the weekend of the fourth Sunday of the month throughout the year, except during the season of Lent.
Parents and Godparents are required to do preparation for the sacrament that is offered by the parish. The preparation includes an explanation of the theology of the sacrament, a run-through of the Rite itself, as well as an explanation of the Church’s requirements for the sacrament.
Baptisms are held on the fourth weekend of the month (except during Lent): in Spanish at 10am Saturday and in English at one of the weekend Masses.
