Requirements to Baptize at Cathedral

Children up to the age of seven may be baptized at the parent's request.  At least one of the parents must be an active Catholic who is committed to raising their child in the Catholic faith.  Parents and god-parents are required to attend a Baptism preparation class prior to the Baptism.  Godparents must be practicing Catholics registered in a parish, at least 16 yrs old and must have celebrated the Sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist, Confirmation and if married, married in the Catholic Church.  If parents or godparents have attended other Baptism preparation classes within the past year, the decision for any additional preparation will be made on a case-by-case basis.

Arrangements should be made well in advance in order to adequately prepare for the celebration of Baptism.  Pre-registration for the class is required.
