Infants are baptized to welcome them into the Catholic faith and to free them from the original sin they were born with. Original sin isn’t a personal sin of the unborn, but a sin transmitted from generation to generation by birth. All men and women are born with original sin, and only Baptism can wash it away.
A baptism preparation session is offered to first-time parents on the first Thursday of each month at 7:30 PM in the Parish Center meeting room. Parents are required to attend.
The Sacrament of Baptism is celebrated on the first three Sundays of the month after the 12:00 noon mass. Baptisms may be scheduled on the 4th Sunday of the month during the 12:00 noon liturgy (limited to 4 infants).
Please contact the Parish Office at 937-433-1188 for available baptismal dates and to schedule a Baptism.
