Baptism unites us with Jesus Christ and is the prerequisite for all other Sacraments.
(YouCat #194)

Baptisms are celebrated on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month after the 10:30am Mass. Before making arrangements with family members, please verify date availability due to fluctuations in the liturgical schedule.

Baptism Preparation

As Catholics we believe that to be Baptized is to be given new birth and new life (John 3:5). We here at St. Joseph’s Church are glad that you are considering to bring your child into the Catholic faith here with us!  Prior to Baptism, parents are required to complete the Baptism preparation class. Baptism preparation classes are offered the 2nd Thursday of each month at 6:30pm.  Please click here to register and begin the process of preparing for this important sacrament.
