Baptism | Bautismo


Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit (vitae spiritualisianua) and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons 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 in the word." -Catechism of the Catholic Church 1213

We would like to welcome all who wish to have their children receive the sacrament of Baptism.  Parents must be registered and active members of St. Jude prior to baptizing. Baptism classes are required for both parents and godparents. Godparent(s) should be at least 16 years old and must be confirmed and an active member of a Catholic parish. If the Godparent(s) is(are) married, they must be married according to the norms of the Roman Catholic Church. If your child is 7 years or older and has not been baptized, please call the parish office for more information as the information above pertains to newborns and children under 7 years of age.
