Baptism

Schedule a Baptism

The Sacrament of Baptism for infants and small children is typically celebrated every week in English and on scheduled dates in Spanish. Baptism at the Cathedral is reserved for members of the Cathedral parish or those with strong ties to the Cathedral. At least one parent must be Catholic. Children are only required to have one Godparent, but if there are two one must be male and the other female. Godparents must be baptized and confirmed Catholics, who are 16 years or older. If married, Godparents must be married in the Church. Parents and Godparents must attend a Baptism Preparation class before the Baptism will be scheduled. Classes are held in English either Monday or Saturday and in Spanish the second Friday of the month. Please call the parish office for a precise schedule. Classes are held in the Parish Center in the Queen of Peace Room on the lower level.

*Note: children ages 6 and older seeking Baptism must complete the RCIC (Rite of Christian Initiation for Children) program. Contact Teresa Wittry  for more details or call the Parish Office at 208-342-3511.
