Preparation of PARENTS/ GODPARENTS FOR BAPTISM
Baptism of infants and children under 3 in English is celebrated the second Saturday and third Sunday of every month.
Parents are required:
- To fill the Baptism Information Sheet at the Rectory, and to provide a copy of the child's birth certificate
- To meet by appointment with the team for a session of rite initiation prior to the Baptism.
Godparents should be Catholics in good standing.
For further information about baptisims in English during the month of July, please call the rectory at 212-222-0666 and ask for Fr. Kearney, the pastor. You can also contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or on-line by clicking this link:
BAPTISM OF CHILDREN OVER THE AGE OF 3
In order for a child over the age of 3 to be baptised, they must have one year of religious education instruction before being baptized.
- Classes are offered Sunday mornings at 9:15 am followed by the 11:00am Mass.
- We follow the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd program, a Montessori-based approach to sharing our Catholic faith with Pre-K and K students, ages 3 through 6.
