Q&A

Please read our frequently asked question about any concerns you may have. If you are still unclear give us a call.

How long will the ceremony be?
About one hour, depending on how many other children are being baptized.

Can I have a private baptism?
Yes, but the priest must approve first.
 
I completed one of the requirements, can I bring in one of the completed forms?
No, we will only take all of the completed forms and receive payment on the day you are registering.

The Godparents live out of town, what can they do to fulfill the requirements?

Godparents can complete the requirements in their home Parish. Once completed, they must request a letter from their parish stating they have attended a baptismal class and attend mass regularly. 

Do I need to bring a candle?

We will provide you with a baptismal candle, but if you would like to bring your own that is fine too.
