Baptism Prep

Baptism preparation is central in the faith formation of parents to raise their children in the practice of the Catholic faith. It is held every other month and covers:

  • the theology, ritual and symbols of baptism,
  • how children form concepts of God and Christian values,
  • ways to pray and develop a personal relationship with God.

Sessions are conducted by our Pastoral Associate, Deacon Mark Farrell. Classes are conducted every other month (January, March, May, July, September and November) on the second Tuesday of the month starting at 7 PM in Room 209.

Because young parents are in a very formative period in their lives, baptism preparation happens with the birth of each child, but the content is different each time.

Baptism times and dates are set with regard to peoples’ choice and parish events. Please contact Deacon Mark Farrell at 920.734-7195 or with questions or to sign-up for a session.
