The Sacrament of Baptism is the foundation of Christian life, the entrance to the life in the Spirit, and access to the other Sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from original sin, become heirs to the Kingdom of God, are incorporated into the Church, and become sharers in the Mission of the Church.
Infant Baptisms for St. Paul parish families are celebrated on the first and third Sundays at 1:15 p.m. except during Lent. Parents must attend a Baptism Preparation Class held on the second Wednesday of every month at 7:00 p.m. in the Center. Parents are encouraged to attend the preparation seminar as soon as possible, even before the birth of their child. Parents must also complete and return the Baptism Register Form (download below) with a copy of their child's birth certificate at least one week prior to their baby's baptism.
Please call the parish office for more information, to register for the Baptism class, or to schedule a baptism : (410) 465-1670.
Baptisms of adults are arranged through our adult education program, the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults.
