Baptism of Infants

Congratulations on the birth or arrival of your child. We are so happy for you. If you would like your infant or child under 7 years old to be baptized, fill out the form below. We will then be in touch to set up an interview with one of the friars. Also please obtain a photocopy or scan of the infant or child’s Birth Certificate.

There’s no such thing as a perfect parent and there’s certainly no perfect Catholic parent. Whether you’re a regular participant at mass or haven’t been for a a while; don’t be nervous. We will work with you. As long as you are open to growing in your spiritual life and passing on your faith to your child we will be happy to welcome you at Assumption.

If you were not married in a Catholic Church and without the blessing of the Church we invite you to consider a “convalidation” of your marriage to make it a Sacrament of Matrimony. More commonly known as having your marriage “blessed” by the church. Although we encourage you to do this, we do not require it to proceed with the baptism of your child. If you have any doubts or questions, come and talk to us. We want to make this work!

Here is a form that we also as you to print and have the proposed God-parents signing affirming that they have the qualities need to sponsor the child for baptism.
