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:

  • There must be at least one Catholic godparent.
  • If two godparents are chosen, they must be one man and one woman.
  • Catholic godparents must be 16 years of age, 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.

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