Celebration of the Sacrament of Baptism takes place within the context of the parish community at the Sunday morning Liturgical celebrations at 11 AM. All newborns and young children are welcomed into the Church with the entire community worshipping together.
For newborns and young children, the Church requires attendance at a parental instruction and information session. These are held on Sunday afternoons at 12:30 PM in Holy Rosary Parish Center. Godparents are strongly urged to attend with the parents and child(ren), if at all possible.
Baptisms are held every other month, with Instruction being held in the month in-between. The Roman Catholic Church requires at least one Godparent (if not both) be active registered member(s) of a Roman Catholic parish. The Godparent(s) must be fully initiated into the Roman Catholic Church. This means having received the Sacraments of Baptism, Holy Eucharist and Confirmation in the Roman Catholic Church. Parents must be registered member(s) of Holy Rosary Church in order to have your child(ren) baptized at the Church.
Please contact Linda Corona for further information and scheduling the celebration of this Sacrament for your child(ren) at 201.945.6329 during regular business hours.
