“Dear parents and godparents: Your families have experienced great joy at the birth of your children, and the Church shares your happiness. Today this joy had brought you to the Church to give thanks to God for the gift of your children and to celebrate a new birth in the waters of Baptism. This community rejoices with you, for today the number of those baptized in Christ will be increased, and we offer you our support in raising your children in the practice of the faith.” (Introduction to the Rite of Baptism)
Our Baptism Coordinators welcome all on the day of the Baptism and assist the Priest / Deacon with the set up and details of the event. This is a joyous ministry as you walk with the young families in this critical stage of their faith life as they initiate their children into the Church.
Initial Training: Training session then mentoring by an experienced baptismal liturgy planner.
Ongoing Formation: as needed
