Baptism
Baptism is the first Sacrament of Initiation. It is our entrance into new life in Jesus Christ and membership in the Catholic Church. Baptism calls us to ongoing conversion. When a child is brought for baptism, parents commit themselves to make a home where the Gospel is lived. Godparents and members of the community promise to support the parents in this commitment.

Preparation
Parents are expected to attend a pre-baptism session prior to celebrating a baptism.  Please call the parish office to find out the dates of the classes. Most baptisms are held directly following a Mass. Please call the parish office at 515-987-4597 to set a date or to inquire about other arrangements.

Check our online events calendar to learn time, date, and location of our next pre-baptism session.
