Sacraments

Sacrament of Baptism

The waters of new life, the light of Christ, and the prayers of our faith community are offered to you at this exciting time.
At St. Mary, baptisms are usually held during Mass so that the Body of Christ can participate.
Please call the parish office to discuss your child's baptism.
