Baptism

Baptism

The Sacrament of Baptism is celebrated the first Sunday of each month during or after the 10 a.m. Mass.

The minimum expectation for those who seek baptism for their child is active participation in our parish by attending Sunday Mass consistently and sacrificial tithing.

Current parishioner registration and a Discipleship Renewal form must be on record with Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church prior to baptism. 

Parents who seek baptism for their child must schedule a one-on-one meeting with Fr. Carter.

Godparent Requirements:

  • One man and one woman, at least 16 years old, may be godparents.
  • There must be at least one Catholic godparent.
  • Catholic godparents must have received the Sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation, Holy Communion, and Confirmation and consistently attend Mass on Sunday.
  • Godparents, if married, must have a valid Catholic marriage.
