At Our Lady of the Visitation, we desire our sacramental celebrations to be meaningful and memorable for all.
This takes a little preparation and care.
First, parents/guardians are offered classes that help them review and enrich their understanding of the responsibilities associated with baptism. Formation classes for parents are held at 7:00PM every second Thursday in the odd months (January, March, May, July, September and November), in the Welcome Center. We encourage all parents to attend a class before the baby is born. Baptism forms need to be completed before scheduling your child's baptism. If you have already taken the class, you are eligible to obtain the baptism forms.
Second, parents/guardians are encouraged to take prayerful consideration in the choosing of godparents who will help guide the child on his/her journey of faith. Godparents must be Confirmed, practicing Catholics at least 16 years of age who are registered at a parish.
Third, Ceremonies are held on the 1st and 3rd Sundays at noon. Baptisms will not be celebrated during Lent.
Baptism classes are required. If you have more questions, or would like to register for class, please contact Jeanne Hunt 347-2228 or Jhunt@olvisitation.org
