Baptism welcomes us into the Church and immerses us into Christian life. It marks out spiritual rebirth as daughters and sons of God.

Baptism of an infant or child is celebrated on the first and third Sunday of the month at 1:30pm. Call the Parish Office to schedule.

Cathechumens (adults preparing for baptism) are received into the Church during the Easter Vigil.


The procedure for Baptism preparation at St. Andrew Church includes an interview and a class. This preparation must be completed by the parents of an infant child before the Sacrament may be administered.

You may register for Baptism preparation by calling the Parish Office at 651-7486. In order to have your infant baptized, you must be a registered member of the parish community. Please plan on making arrangements in advance to avoid any delays when your child is born.
Upcoming preparation classes are held once a month, usually on the third Saturday. The interview is scheduled prior to the class.

If you have children five years of age or older, who have not yet received the Sacrament of Baptism, please call the Religious Education Office at 651-6401, for information regarding preparation for older children for Baptism.
