Infant Baptism

Today, the Church still recognizes the connection between faith and baptism. When a child under the age of 7 is baptized, the parents’ faith speaks for the child who is too young to have explicit faith on his or her own.  Before a child under the age of 7 is Baptized, the Church requires a reasonable hope that the parents will raise the child in the Catholic faith and requires the parents and godparents to attend a Baptism Preparation Class.

Scheduling a Baptism at All Saints

Baptism for Infants and children under the age of 7 is offered every Sunday at 12:30pm except Easter Sunday.  Baptism must be scheduled at least two – three weeks in advance of the desired baptism date.
