Congratulations on the birth of your child!  Giving your child the gift of eternal life through the live giving waters of Baptism is a great choice you make for your child.  We at St. Mary Catholic Church would like to assist you with this.
Baptisms may be held during or after any of the Saturday night or Sunday morning Masses except on days restricted by the Catholic Church.  Only one Godparent is required, but two are recommended, one male and one female.  One Godparent must be a practicing Catholic in good standing with the Catholic Church.
A Baptism Preparation class may be required.  These preparation classes for parents are by appointment; call the office 815-234-7431
To start the process of having your child Baptized at St. Mary's, fill out the Baptismal Request Information below and someone will contact you within two business days.
Again, congratulations on the birth of your child.
