Baptism unites us with Jesus Christ and is the prerequisite for all other Sacraments.
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.
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.
For more information about Baptisms or to register for the preparation class, please call the Parish Office at 651-423-4402 or email us at Sacraments@StJosephCommunity.org.
