St. Gilbert Parish Baptismal Preparation Ministry

Parishioners who have children to be baptized are asked to attend a Baptismal Preparation Session. Because Baptism is a commitment by the parents to raise the child in the Catholic faith, it is necessary that the parents presenting their children for Baptism are also living up to their own Baptismal commitment. No date for the Baptism is made until the parents have attended one of the Baptismal Sessions.

Reservations for the sessions are limited and they fill up quickly. Parents are encouraged to attend before the baby is born. PLEASE CALL THE RECTORY AT 223-4731 TO SCHEDULE A BAPTISMAL PREPARATION SESSION.
