Baptism is the first and most important sacrament because it is the door to life in the Church and the kingdom of God. Through the sacrament of Baptism, the child is cleansed of original sin, incorporated into Christ and made a member of His Body, the Church. Since parents are the first teachers of their child/ren, the Church places it's trust in parents to bring their newly baptized child/ren up in the ways of the Catholic faith by their example and regular and active participation in Mass and in their parish.
Attendance at a baptism class is required prior to the baptism of your child. Godparents are encouraged to attend class as well. Please call the parish office at 952-854-4733 to register for a baptism class. Classes are held every other month in the Activities building at 7:00 pm.
