Proclaiming Christ and Making Disciples



Baptism is a Sacrament of Initiation into the Catholic community.  As part of Baptism preparation, parents of infants and children under the age of 7 participate in a class to reflect on their own faith journey. A person needs to celebrate the Sacrament of Baptism before preparing for First Eucharist, First Reconciliation and Confirmation.

You must be a registered member of Maternity of Mary to have your child Baptized.  Please contact the parish office to register or information about Baptism. 651-489-8825
