Baptism of Infants and Young Children
Through the sacrament of baptism, we become part of the family of God and members of our St. Jude Parish Faith Community. Participation in the parent formation program “Embracing Christ and His Parish” is required for parents wishing to have a child baptized. This class will clarify the roles of parents, godparents, and the various symbols that are used within the baptismal ceremony. Baptismal families need to be active, registered members of the parish. Baptisms are typically held on the first and third Saturdays of the month.
Parents wishing to have their child who is under catechetical age (3rd grade), baptized must be a registered member of the parish and have participated in the preparatory class, Embracing Christ and His Parish: Baptism. This class will clarify the roles of parents, godparents, and the various symbols that are used within the Baptismal ceremony.
If parents from another parish wish to have their young child baptized here they must meet the requirements of their parish for baptism and submit a letter of permission from their parish to the Administrator of Children's Faith Formation before the date of baptism.
Baptisms are typically held on the first and third Saturdays of the month at 11 AM. Baptism may also be scheduled for Sunday after the 11:30 Mass.
