Infant/Child Baptism at Immaculate Heart of Mary
Congratulations on choosing to have your child baptized in the Catholic Church! This is the best thing you can do for your child. Typically, baptisms are held on Sundays after the 10:15 Mass.
Please read our Baptism booklet.
Baptism of Older Children
We highly encourage parents to have children baptized when they are infants. We also strongly encourage parents to enroll their children in our Catholic School or Religious Education programs, where they will be taught the Catholic faith and prepare for the reception of the Sacraments following a timeline that is appropriate for their age level. For children over the age of 7 who have not yet been baptized, please contact the parish office to make arrangements for them to go through the preparation process and continue their faith formation as a student at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic School or in our faith formation program.
Baptism for Adults
Adults who have never been baptized and are desiring to receive the Sacraments of the Catholic Church must attend the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults). Preparation sessions for adults begin with an inquiry session and interview. RCIA sessions begin in the fall and continue through Palm Sunday, with the reception of the Sacraments at the Easter Vigil Mass. For more information, visit our Adult Faith Enrichment page or contact Kathy Marshall.
