Congratulations on the birth or pending birth of your child or godchild! Our team at St. Brigid's welcome your inquiry about the gateway sacrament of baptism. By seeking to have a child baptized, parents express their intent and accept the responsibility to educate their child in the practice of the Catholic faith, as do the godparents. This time in your life brings a renewed invitation for parents and godparents to Encounter, Love, and Serve ~ Jesus, One Another, and the World! Participation in our Connection To Christ (C2C) small groups, which currently meets seasonally, is highly encouraged for parents and godparents. In a friendly discussion setting with members of our parish community, our goal is to deepen your faith and refresh your commitment as friends and disciples of Jesus Christ.
In our sacrament orientation, we'll reflect on the deeper meaning of Christian discipleship, while learning the history and meaning of the Sacrament of Baptism. Our orientation dinners are scheduled every other month from 6 - 8 pm. To attend an Infant Baptism Orientation Dinner, complete the registration form or contact Lee.
