Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit, and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as children of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission: Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water and the word."
(Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1213)
Infants are regularly baptized on either:
-1st and 2nd Saturdays of the Month at 6:00 pm (after the 5:00 pm Mass) or
-3rd and 4th Sundays of the Month at 11:45 am (after the 10:30 am Mass).
This is subject to change around holidays, Confirmation, 1st Communion, or other special parish occasions.
-Parents must have attended a Baptismal Preparation Class prior to the Baptism of their child. These classes remain current for a period of 3 years. St. Michael the Archangel hosts a class on the 1st Saturday of each month. Please contact our Pastoral Ministry Coordinator at 913-402-3920 to register or receive further information.
