Baptism

BEGINNING THE JOURNEY

Would you like to have your child baptized at St. Anthony's? We would be so honored to provide this opportunity for you and your family, and we hope it will only be the beginning of many sacraments for your child here.


We celebrate infant baptisms for children up to the age of seven. Children past the age of seven are invited to prepare for and celebrate the Sacrament of Baptism through our RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) Adapted for Children. If you're an unbaptized adult, our Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults process might be right for you. 

Please contact the parish office to schedule a baptism. Classes of preparation may be required. The Sacrament of Baptism may be celebrated during Mass or afterwards.
