Sacrament of Baptism

Catholic Parents may request the Sacrament of Baptism for their child. Baptisms are celebrated at the Cathedral Basilica for registered and regularly participating members or our parish community on the first Sunday of each month during our regularly scheduled Lord’s Day Masses (Saturday 5:00 p.m.; Sunday 9:00 a.m.; 11:00 a.m.). Parents are invited to complete the application below and submit it to the parish office. An appointment will then be arranged to meet the Rector to establish the date for the celebration and any necessary preparation.

Adults who seek the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist are invited to contact the parish office for information about the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA).
