"Infant" baptism is available for children aged birth- 6-years-old. (Children aged 7-years-old and older need to go through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults for Children (RCIA/C) process.) We ask that parents be registered and active at Assumption no less than three months prior to the date of baptism.
Classes are offered throughout the year in English and in Spanish to prepare parents and godparents for infant baptisms. A baptism date cannot be set until both English classes have been attended (one class in Spanish) and the registration form(s) have been completed and submitted, including a copy of the child's birth certificate.
Infant baptisms are held monthly outside of Mass. The exceptions to this are:
December--no baptisms (Advent);
January--held during Mass on Baptism of the Lord weekend;
March--no baptisms (Lent); and
June--held during Mass the weekend closest to June 24, the Solemnity of the Nativity of John the Baptist.
Pre-registration for classes is required.
