Congratulations to your family as you begin to prepare to celebrate the Sacrament of Baptism for your child!
The pastoral staff at Holy Cross – Immaculata Parish wants to help you make your child’s baptism a meaningful event. We hope that you will receive the information on these links in a spirit of openness and reverence since you are preparing to have your child receive the first Sacrament of Initiation of the Catholic Church.
We want the parents and Godparents to be active participants in the baptismal rite. Therefore the links below include an overview of the theology of the Sacrament of Baptism as well as an explanation of the order of the ceremony.
The priest or deacon who will be the presider for your child’s baptism ceremony will meet with you to plan a service in which you will be actively involved in choosing the readings and prayers.
Thank you in advance for your participation in this process. May this preparation make your child’s baptism a truly joyful and spirit filled event!
