Baptism for Infants
We, the parishioners of St. John XXIII Parish, feel blessed for the opportunity to journey with you as you prepare for your child’s Baptism. If this is your first experience in a Baptism preparation program, we hope and pray that this journey of faith and the celebration of your child’s Baptism will be a great experience and a true spiritual encounter for you and your family in which you rekindle your friendship with Christ and his Church. If you have gone through such a program before, we hope that you will share with us some of your wisdom and insights, ask engaging questions, and use this time to renew and refresh what may have been forgotten. We look forward to sharing faith with you, and together renew/kindle our friendship with Christ and his Church for the salvation of the world and the glory of God.
The program involves THREE (3) meetings: The initial visit and two classes. The classes are held Second and Fourth Sundays of every month from 3-5pm. We know you are busy taking care of God’s gift to you, your family, and we want to respect your time. Therefore, before your initial visit, please take some time to read through the frequently asked questions (FAQs). This will help you better prepare for and make the best use of your time with us. To schedule an initial meeting, please call our parish office: (319-846-3139).
