We look forward to adding a new member to our parish community!
Baptisms are celebrated during Masses on Saturday evening and Sunday.
There are two preparation classes necessary before the Baptism date. Please remember when selecting your Godparents that one needs to be a Catholic that has received their Sacrament of Confirmation, and is 16 years of age or older.
To arrange your child's Baptism please contact the parish office at 302-633-4900
. Leave a message for Elizabeth Skorup and she will meet with you to start preparation.
The following resource links will give you some insight into the "Role of parents as the first teachers of the child" and "The role of Godparents" , "Choosing a Christian name for your child" and other topics pertaining to baptism in particular. Reading this now will give you a better appreciation of the importance of properly preparing for the Sacrament of Baptism for your child. It will also be beneficial to those preparing for the baptism of subsequent children. There are many other resource materials available but these have been chosen because of they provide you with the fundamental Church's teachings relative to being a parent and Baptism.
