The Sacrament of Baptism signals the beginning of a person’s special relationship with the Church.  The Catholic Church welcomes people of all ages into our faith community–as a young child (Infant Baptism) or as an adult (the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, RCIA)

Please contact the parish office at 708/352-0168 to schedule your baby's baptism.  Baptisms are generally held on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month at 1:30 pm.  If this is your first child we ask that you attend a Baptism Preparation Class which is held on the 4th Thursday of every month at 7:30 pm.

The baptism ministry is coordinated by volunteers Matthew and Kathryn Kanzer.  Please contact them at mkanzer@yahoo.com with any questions.

If you are an adult seeking baptism, please see information on our website regarding Becoming Catholic (RCIA).
