Baptism Preparation (infants to 7 yrs old)
“Go, therefore, make disciples of all nations; baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.” Matthew 28: 19-20
Congratulations on choosing to have your child baptized at St. Brendan Parish! We are excited that you are bringing your child here to receive his/her first sacrament. We welcome you and hope that this is a holy and happy experience for you and your entire family.
Having your child baptized is a responsibility not to be taken lightly. The Catholic Church has always taught that “Parents are the primary educators in the faith. Together with them, especially in certain cultures, all members of the family play an active part in the education of the younger members.” (General Directory for Catechesis, #255). Our baptismal preparation is designed to assist you, the parents and Godparents, in raising your child in the Catholic faith.
