Baptismal Prep Team

Story image 1_0



The team leads the baptismal preparation classes for parents of babies about to be baptized and assists the priests behind the scenes with the baptism ceremonies.  This rewarding opportunity is a great chance to welcome new babies to the parish and guide families through this special time in their life.


Time Commitment:

We provide training and “on-the-job shadowing” to all new volunteers.  We meet as a group once or twice per year.  Generally we rotate responsibilities individually or as couples between the classes (this requires 2 hours on the 4th Thursday evening of each month) and baptism ceremonies (2 hours on the 1st and 3rd Sunday afternoons of each month).  Depending on the size of our group, this results in volunteering a couple of hours every month or two.

Please email Matthew and Kathryn Kanzer if interested or for additional information.
