Infant Baptism

The Sacrament of Baptism, the first of all the seven sacraments, ushers us into the life of Christ Jesus. Christ’s life, his saving death and Resurrection become our hope of new life. In baptism, we enter the Church, the Body of Christ; we become children of God and brothers and sisters to one another in faith.

Infant baptisms are generally administered on the first and third Sundays of the month after the 11:30 a.m. Mass. Parent’s participation in a baptismal preparation class is requested before baptism is scheduled. The classes at St. Agnes parish are scheduled three times a year. Dates for these sessions will appear in the bulletin. Parents may take this class prior to the birth of their first child.
