Infant Baptism

“Baptizing a child is an act of justice because in Baptism we give him or her a treasure, we give them a pledge: the Holy Spirit”. -Pope Francis

The following applies to the baptism of infants and children who have not yet reached the age of seven years old. Adults and children of catechetical age should visit Youth Baptism or Adult Baptism. For more details about the baptism of an infant or young child, please see below.

As parents and godparents, you have the privilege and responsibility to guide your child or godchild through his or her faith journey. That journey begins in a formal way with baptism.

The Sacrament of Baptism is often celebrated on Sunday, either during Mass or outside of Mass in a separate Liturgy of the Word.

As preparation for the celebration, parents should attend a baptismal preparation class if they have not already done so. Godparents are welcome, but not required, to attend. At Holy Trinity, these classes are held once a month (see schedule below) on either Saturday morning or Monday evening.

Baptism Preparation Class at Holy Trinity

Baptism Preparation classes are required for parents who seek to have their child/ren baptized. Often godparents are also asked to participate in a preparation session.

Celebrating Baptism at Holy Trinity

For the duration of 2021, baptism liturgies are celebrated in Church as a Liturgy of the Word (outside of Mass) on Sunday afternoon. These liturgies usually take anywhere between 30-45 minutes. As many as five families participate in these liturgies and we ask that you include no more than 15 guests.
