CONGRATULATIONS ON THE BIRTH OF YOUR CHILD!
The sacrament of Baptism is a very important event in the life of your child. Through Baptism, your child will receive God’s sanctifying grace for the first time, and become a member of the Body of Christ through membership in the Catholic Church. We are delighted to welcome your child as one of the newest members of our parish as well!
Christ the King prides itself in being a warm and caring parish community. We hope that the time you spend in preparing for your child’s baptism will be a unique opportunity for you to deepen your participation in the life of our parish. Each Sunday we gather for Mass to celebrate who we are as God’s people. Together we reflect on God’s Holy Word and are nourished by the Eucharist (Holy Communion), which is the source and summit of our life.
At Christ the King there is a requirement that parents of a child to receive the sacrament attend 3 baptismal preparation classes. Please note that classes are held on Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. Baptism classes are held in the Parish Center. Call the Parish Center for dates. Baptisms are celebrated during any Mass or at 1:30 p.m. on the second and fourth Sunday of each month.
If you are unable to attend our parish preparation sessions, you may complete a baptismal preparation instruction at another parish. Please make sure that the other parish gives you a letter of completion which you may drop off at the parish center.
