Infant Baptism Sacrament Orientation for Parents and Godparents (Bi-monthly)
→ START HERE: Review the Baptism Preparation Process Information Packet - Rev. 03-20-2023
Congratulations on the birth or pending birth of your child or godchild! Our team at Saint Brigid Parish welcomes 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.
Upcoming Orientation - Tuesday, May 9 at 6 pm via Zoom

Ongoing faith enrichment for Parents and Godparents: Participation in our Connection To Christ (C2C) small groups, which meet seasonally, is highly encouraged for parents and godparents. Connection to Christ Small groups are a great way to meet new people, ask questions, and grow in faith. To learn more or join a group click here.
Unbaptized Adults (and Children, aged 7 years and up) ~ Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) with an adaptation for Older Children
RCIA is the process for an unbaptized adult to explore the Catholic faith through an "apprenticeship" in the way of Christian discipleship within this community of believers. For more information about this process, including information for baptized Christians or baptized Catholics desiring preparation for the sacraments of initiation, please consult the RCIA page or contact Lee Hulburt in the parish office.
Is your unbaptized child 7 years and older? Preparing older children for baptism is a comprehensive, multi-sacrament preparation process, coordinated through our children's religious education director, Gayle Heyman. Please contact Gayle directly to discuss your older child's sacrament preparation journey.
