The Sacrament of Baptism initiates us, sacramentally plunges us, into the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. For the Baptism of infants and toddlers, there is a baptismal preparation process. The early Church often spent several years preparing for the life altering celebration of Baptism. Our process begins with parents calling the parish to express their interest in Baptism for their child. Parents will be sent a packet of information to read and prepare before attending Baptism Preparation Class. The Church’s requirements for godparents will be handled during this time. Scheduling the Baptism will occur after the original, sealed forms are sent to the office and approved. This baptismal preparation process is needed for any parishioners that have not attended formal Baptism classes at Christ the King in the last five years.
