Baptisms

Celebrating the Sacrament of Baptism is always a joyful event in our Parish. It’s such a privilege to facilitate this momentous event in the lives of families and in particular, the life of the child.

A Preparation Class for parents and godparents is usually held prior to the scheduled Sacrament of Baptism at 7PM in our Parish Center.

At times, parents inquire about what to consider when selecting godparents for their child, and if it is okay to select a person who is not Catholic. Catholic teaching is as follows:

A godparent is a Catholic who is at least 16 years of age, has received the Sacrament of Confirmation, and who leads a life in harmony with the Catholic faith so that he/she can serve as a good Catholic role-model for the child and support the parents in raising their child in the Catholic faith.

A Christian Witness is a non-Catholic who practices their Christian faith, and may be substituted for one of the godparents.

Please keep these qualifications in mind when selecting godparents for your child.

If you are expecting a child and want to have him or her baptized in our Parish, please contact Sr. Nancy at 617-242-4664 or ncitro@stmarystcatherine.org.
