Baptism is the first Sacrament a child receives. Parents of the child are asked to attend a class to review the ritual and understand their responsibilities. These classes are held once a month, normally on the first Wednesday of the month, and it is encouraged that parents attend at least five or six weeks prior to the scheduled Baptism.
Baptisms are normally held at one of our scheduled weekend masses.
If you are not a registered parishioner at St. Charles, you are still welcome to have your child baptized here, but it is necessary to have permission from the parish you are registered in.
When picking Godparents, there are guidelines. The Godparent must be at least 16 years of age, and must have received the Sacrament of Confirmation. All Godparents must also be baptized.
