May He bless the mother and father of this child.
They will be the first teachers of their child in the ways of faith.
May they be also the best of teachers,
Bearing witness to the faith by what they say and do

Rite of Baptism



Infants and Young Children: Baptisms are held, as often as possible, Sunday afternoons following the 12 Noon Mass. Arrangements can be made by calling the rectory office at 846.8207.

Children: Children (7 years and older) who desire baptism normally prepare through our Parish Grade School, or through our Parish School of Religion with the consultation of the clergy.

Baptismal Preparation:  This is for parishioners who are or are about to be first-time parents or godparents (although you are also invited to attend if you already have children or have been godparents before).  You are asked to call the rectory office at 314.846.8207  to register a session. Sessions are conducted on the first Sunday of each month after the 9:00 a.m. Mass (so approximately  at 9:45 a.m.) in the Adult Resource Center (ARC room) in the Church Hall.
