Infant Baptism at St. Isidore

You have asked to have your child baptized. In doing so you are accepting the responsibility of training your child in the practice of the faith. It will be your duty to bring your child up to keep God's commandments as Christ taught us, by loving God and our neighbor. Do you clearly understand what you are undertaking?

address to parents
Rite of Baptism of Children

Initial catechesis

A time for parents (and godparents, if available) to reflect on the meaning and beauty of the call of little children to the waters of baptism. This will be done quarterly.

And yes, we include parents who have had children baptised in the last few years.

Next meeting is Sunday January 15, 2017 after the 9AM Mass in the work sacristy (to the right of the altar).

Please register in advance by calling the office between 9:30 AM and 12:30 PM or emailing info@stisidorestow.org, and including the filled out Baptismal Record Information form (below).

Picking Sponsors/godparents:

Please see our short write-up on the requirements for baptismal sponsors before you start asking people to be a godparent. Please contact Deacon Charlie (cac@stisidorestow.org) if you have any questions on this.

Immediate preparation and celebration

The priest or one of the deacons will then meet individually with the family to schedule a time for the celebration. There will be a preparation session two weeks before the celebration. .

Follow-up

A post baptismal follow-up will be announced for all families of newly baptized.
