What if there is a lot more happening in Baptism than most people realize?

In engaging sessions, the Reborn program explores the deeply personal and sacred relevancy of Baptism for Parents, Godparents and, most importantly, the Baptized.

With a step-by-step explanation of the rite itself, including its profound place in Scripture and Tradition, Reborn shows how baptism reveals the heart of God’s love for His children.

Parents planning to have their child baptized at St. Patrick Church must meet the following criteria:

  1. Be registered members of St. Patrick Parish or present a letter of permission and good standing from their home parish. You can register on this website (“I’m New” tab) or in person at the parish office. Adult children of parish families who wish to have a child baptized must be registered under their own household.  This is necessary to properly record your child’s sacraments.
  2. Be actively participating in parish life by regularly attending Mass on Sundays and Holy days of Obligation, and supporting the parish with their time and wealth as they are able.
  3. Have prepared through our REBORN class program. This class needs to be taken only once.
