Baptism

Sacraments

The day of Baptism is a day for the whole family to celebrate! For your child, Baptism is the day in which she/he is reborn in Christ Our Savior. For the parents, godparents, and family, it is a day of great happiness for their child is to receive the faith, which has been handed down from their family members. For the Christian community, it is a day of promise, welcome, and hope as a new member of the Church received the faith and we reaffirm our Christian heritage. Baptism is the first step in initiation into the sacramental life of faith.

In order to have your child baptized at St. Didacus, parents must fulfill the following requirements:

Registration: Parents must be registered parishioners of St. Didacus for at least 3 months. If you live outside the Parish boundaries you must be practicing your faith and be registered here for at least at least 3 months prior to the date of baptism.

Interview: An interview with the pastor or deacon is required before scheduling the Baptism.

Seminar: Please Note: Due to COVID19 retrictions, we are not offering a Baptismal Seminar until further notice. Parents and sponsors (godparents) of the child to be baptized are required to watch the Baptism video available below.

Sponsors: A Sponsor (Godparent) must (a) be at least 16-years-old, (b) received the sacraments of Communion and Confirmation, and (c) must be of good moral character, living a life of faith. One sponsor, male or female, is sufficient, but there may be two, one of each sex (Ref. Canon Law #873-874, "Sponsors"). If from another parish, the individual will need to provide a letter from her/his parish stating that the sponsor is in good standing at that parish. If married, they must be married in the church.
