Baptism

Sacrament of Baptism                              

Parents who are planning to have their first child baptized at St. John's must take part in a Baptismal Prep Class which is held on the first Sunday of each month at 12 p.m. in the Parish Center.   You do not need to register for the class.  At this meeting, you will fill out information regarding the child, parents and Godparents.  This paperwork will then be handed into the Office Manager at the Rectory on Monday. The parents will then call the Rectory to go over the Parish Calendar and choose a date for the Baptism. 

Requirements for Godparents:  St. John's requires that both Godmother and Godfather have been baptized.  At least one Godparent has to be Catholic and Confirmed.

If Parents are not married: A copy of the child's birth certificate is required.

All Baptisms are held on Saturday's at 1:30 p.m. or 5:15 p.m.

If you would like to set up a baptism and this is not your first child, please call the Rectory Office at 978-368-0366.
