Infant Baptism

Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit (vitae spiritualis ianua), and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission: "Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water in the word." (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1213)

A baby’s baptism is a time for celebration and joy. We, at St. John XXIII, want to help you prepare for you baby’s baptism.

Baptismal preparation classes are held monthly, on the first Wednesday, in our parish. Attendance at one of these sessions is necessary before you schedule your child’s baptism.

To register for a baptismal preparation class, please call the church office at
