Baptism of Infants

Baptism begins our new life in Jesus Christ, washing away original sin and endowing us with our Christian mission to be priests, prophets, and kings by the grace of God.

The sacrament of Baptism is ordinarily celebrated on the first and third Sundays of each month at noon. Parents should contact Christopher Menzhuber, no less than three months prior to the preferred date of Baptism.

Parents will be asked to attend a Baptism preparation session if they have not attended one at Holy Spirit within the last two years. Parents who are not parishioners should also expect to have an interview with the pastor prior to setting a date for Baptism.

The fee for baptisms is $25. Online payments can be made on the Vanco page under "Sacraments."
