“Let the Children Come”
Baptism welcomes your child as a member of our faith-filled Catholic family. Our relationship with God begins in the waters of Baptism. It is the cornerstone of our Catholic faith. As parents, we support, nurture, and help grow our children’s relationship with God. God’s promise of heaven is declared in Baptism. By continually bringing our children to the Table of the Lord and showing them a Christ-centered life, we begin that faith-filled journey to heaven.
Saint Ambrose offers Baptism classes every other month. Parents are required to attend the class before their first child is baptized.
Godparents are an essential part of your child’s faith. We encourage them to attend the class with you. Godparents should be people who are good, patient, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic witnesses of the Catholic faith to help support you and your child in their faith journey. One parent must be a practicing Catholic and a registered parishioner of Saint Ambrose.
