Baptism

Infant Baptism

Baptism is the first Sacrament of Initiation. The Sacraments of Initiation join us to Christ and help us to keep our relationship with Christ first in our lives; we experience Christ’s love in special ways through Baptism. The sacrament of Baptism welcomes children into the Christian family.

 

Parents meet for one session. During this session the topics for discussion include the sacrament of baptism, the ritual of this important sacrament, and what it means to be a Christian parent. Families must be registered members of the Parish or have a letter of permission from the pastor of their current parish.

A Baptism class is required.
Contact Parish Office at info@stgens.org or 651.429.7937 to register.

Baptisms are generally celebrated after the 10:30 Mass on the third Sunday of month.  Note that there are no baptisms during the Lenten season.
