Celebration of the Sacrament of Baptism takes place within the context of the parish community at the Sunday morning Liturgical celebrations at 11:00AM. 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 sessions are held on the Sunday before the baptism at 12:00 PM in the Church. Godparents are strongly urged to attend with the parents and child(ren), if at all possible. Parents must also provide a copy of the child’s birth certificate.
Baptisms are generally held in accordance with the schedule posted on this site, but exceptions are made. 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 their child(ren) baptized at the Church.
Please contact the Parish Center for further information and scheduling the celebration of this Sacrament for your child(ren) at 201.945.6329.
