Baptism

Baptisms are ordinarily celebrated during Mass on the first Sunday of the month at St. James and on the second Sunday of the month at St. Philip. During Lent, any baptisms are usually deferred until the Easter Vigil or privately by request.

Before the child is baptized, parents and godparents must attend a baptismal seminar to refresh their knowledge of the obligations of raising children as Catholics.
