Please use the following form to register for one of our Baptism Preparation Sessions, "New Beginnings," which are held once a month on Monday evenings at Old St. Mary's Parish Center from 6:30-8:15 pm.
You are also invited to sign up for one of our baptism follow-up sessions, which you can attend after your child is baptized. These sessions are called "Baby Steps: A Follow-Up to Your Child's Baptism," and are held every few months at Old St. Mary's Parish Center on Saturday mornings from 9:00-10:30 am.
If you have questions about this form or Baptism Prep, please contact Rachel McGrew at firstname.lastname@example.org.
1) Make sure that you are officially registered at your parish. If you are not sure that you are registered, call your parish office and they can verify it for you, and/or start the process if you are not. For Old St. Mary's call (414) 271-6180; for Three Holy Women call (414) 271-6577; for Our Lady of Divine Providence call (414) 264-0049; for Saints Peter and Paul call (414)962-2443.
2) Register for and attend a Baptism Preparation Session, where you will explore the meaning of baptism and learn what to expect on that day. At the class, you will receive the godparent forms, which need to be filled out by the godparent as well as by the priest at his or her home parish. You can request an electronic copy of the form if that is more convenient for you.
3) Turn in the godparent forms to the office. From there, you can work with the office to select a date for the baptism. (Note: the Catholic godparent form must be returned in order to secure a date for the baptism).
4) Once your child is baptized, we invite you to attend "Baby Steps: A Follow-Up to Your Child's Baptism" as a way not only to connect with other couples from our Family of Four Parishes, but also to explore more deeply questions like "now what?" in terms of raising a family in the Catholic faith.
