Infant Baptism Preparation


The Infant Baptism Preparation Program ministers to parents who request that their children be baptized at St. Joseph Basilica. The Baptismal team interviews parents and welcomes them into the parish community. We strive to support parents in their most important endeavor, initiating their children into the faith. Parents are asked to attend one two-hour class and the communal baptism. 
Baptism team members facilitate communal baptism six times a year. The class and the Baptism take place over two consecutive Sunday afternoons. The Baptism Team also meets twice a year for review and retreat. If you have two Sundays a year that you can give to parishioners who request baptism for their children, please think about joining us in this very important ministry.
