BaptismWe are delighted that you are inquiring to have your child baptized at Saint Paul Church. Parents and godparents accept the responsibility of training your child in the practice of the Catholic faith. You are not alone in this responsibility. The Saint Paul Community is here to support you. We recommend you begin the registration process at least 3 months prior to the date you are requesting. You can call before your child’s birth. Since more than 100 babies are Baptized each year at Saint Paul Church please wait for confirmation of the date from the Parish Staff before you make plans.

It is recommended that you carefully read the “Frequently Asked Questions” which are on this website. To register you have the option of submitting your registration request on-line or you can print and mail the registration form on the parish website. On-line registration is the most effective.
