Baptismal Preparation

First time parents attend a special class in preparation for their child’s baptism learning about the significance of the sacrament and the responsibilities of Catholic parenthood. St. Joseph has these sessions in February, April, June, August, October, and December, while St John Neumann hosts the sessions in the other months. Baptisms are celebrated at St. Joseph every Sunday (except during Lent) at 1:00pm or during any weekend Mass. If you wish to schedule a baptism, or in need of an emergency baptism for an ill, unbaptized person, please call the Parsh Office. Volunteers are invited to join in this ministry and share their experience of Christian parenting with new parents.
