We are delighted to congratulate you on this happy occasion of your child’s baptism.  The Sacrament of Baptism initiates your child into the Faith Community of Saint Joseph, and we invite you to worship with us as a family on a regular basis.

Baptisms take place on the 1st Saturday of the month at 10:00am (English) and 11:00am (Spanish).  Baptisms must be scheduled 1 month in advance.  At least one parent, and both godparents, must be Catholic.  A godparent must be baptized Catholic and living in accordance with the Catholic faith.  A godparent may be single, or married in the Catholic Church.  Catholics who are living with their partners or who have been married in a civil ceremony do not qualify as godparents.  All parents and godparents must take a pre-baptismal class, held the 4th Saturday of the month at 10:am, or present a letter of attendance from his/her parish prior to the baptism date.  Additionally, parents must provide the birth certificate of the child to be baptized.
