Baptism plunges the newcomer into the power of Christ’s death to sin and his rising to new life, the Paschal mystery.
Now a child of God, Baptism brings membership in the body of Christ, the Church. Baptism is most meaningfully
celebrated with the community at Sunday Mass, but can also be celebrated privately. Families expecting a child
are invited to call Fr. Mark 419-693-1150. Baptism preparation highlights the role of parents as first teachers
of the faith for their children.
Before the baptism of their first child, parents are required to attend one baptismal preparation session.
Sessions are held on the third Sunday of the months of January, March, May, July, September and November at 10:00 am.
All sessions are held in the Parish Life Center.
