Baptism Preparation

 Baptism Coordinator - Sarah Inman

Do you want to have your child baptized?  Entry into the church community and God's family through the rite of Baptism is a great decision and a significant step. This is an important choice on your part, because as parents, you are the first teachers of your child in the practice of the faith. The St. Agnes Parish Community shares your responsibility in preparing for your child's baptism by providing an initial preparation program for parents. You are invited and expected to participate in this preparation to gain information about the celebration rite, to explore the meaning and hopes of your child's baptism, and your own expectations about sharing the life of faith.

The preparation program consists of a one evening parent discussion session focused on Christian parenting, a group rehearsal the week of the actual Baptism and the completion of a baptism registration form.

Baptism is the sacrament of belonging to a faith community therefore it is celebrated every other month during regularly scheduled liturgies. (Sat. 5:00 p.m., Sunday 9:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.)

If you feel that you are ready to share your faith in word and action with your child, please contact Sarah Inman at to register and begin Baptism preparation.
