  5) Godparents must be 16 years of age or older, one male and one female.  One of the godparents must be baptized Roman Catholic and we require a copy of the godparent’s Roman Catholic Baptism Certificate. Both godparents must believe in God.  

 To assure that parents have a full understanding of what it means to have their child Baptized into the Catholic Faith they will be asked to attend one preparation session.  The sessions are held on the second Thursday of the month.  Please contact the office if you plan to attend.

Baptism For Adults

The RCIA is a communal process and involves a number of stages punctuated by liturgical rites to aid and assist the potential convert toward the final rite, usually at the Easter Vigil, at which time they will become full members of the Roman Catholic Church. The entire process takes several months, (ideally a minimum of one complete liturgical year), but participants are generally invited to proceed at a pace which suits them individually. The Church prefers to call this the process and not a program.
