Infant Baptism

BAPTISM OF INFANTS

“Let the little children come to me.” Mark 10:14

Infants are children seven years and younger. If you want your child baptized at Ascension Parish, we will be glad to work with you.  If you want to have your child baptized in another parish but want to go through the Baptism seminar process at Ascension, we will be happy to help you.  There are two preparation steps:

 

First step. Meet with our pastor, Fr. Eamon Tobin, who loves to get to know all who wish to have their child baptized in the Church. You can contact Fr. Eamon at tobin2@live.com or through the Parish Office at 254-1595 ext 3070.

 

Second step.  Attend a Baptism Seminar which consists of 2 two-hour sessions. The seminar is held three times each year.  We offer FREE childcare during the seminar.

 

Baptism of children 8 years and older:

 Unbaptized children 8 years and older will prepare for the sacrament of Baptism throughout Children’s RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults).  See CHILDREN’S (RCIA)
