Baptisms at SJCC

The act of baptizing is essential to the church’s life. Proclaiming the Good News in such a way that people are moved to profess faith and be baptized is a charge given to the Christian community from the Risen Christ himself.

Baptism Classes

First and second-time parents are required to attend two sessions, which are held on the 1st and 2nd Sunday of each month. While the classes do not need to be completed in the same month, please make sure you attend one of each session as the content differs.

Prospective parents are encouraged to participate in the Baptism Preparation Classes during the pregnancy.

Schedule your baptism prep class by clicking here.

A date for their baby’s Baptism can be scheduled upon completion of the class and once all necessary paperwork has been received including the Baptism Registration Form and all godparent documents.

There is a fee of $150.00 for the Sacrament of Baptism for first and second time parents and a $100.00 fee for third (or more) time parents, click here to pay by credit card.
