If so, have you received a Declaration of Nullity from the Catholic Church?
Check both boxes if it applies to both parents.
Only one godparent is necessary but if there are two it must be one godfather and one godmother. Both must be regularly practicing Catholics in good standing with the Church. If instead of a second Catholic godparent you have a friend or relative who is a baptized non-Catholic and wish to have him or her stand with you as a "Christian Witness" to the baptism of your child, you may do so. Please indicate by the appropriate selection on the dropdown menu.

Baptisms for children under seven years old are held on the fourth weekend of every month at the following campuses:

  • Holy Cross (Saturday 1030am, Sunday 830am between the 730am and 930am Masses)

  • St. Clement (Sunday 12 noon after 11am Mass)

  • St. Hedwig (Saturday 5pm after 4pm Mass).

A parish Baptism Catechesis will be held on the second Saturday of the month at 9:45am at Holy Cross.

All parents desiring baptism for a child under the age of seven years must attend a Baptism Catechesis, after which they can register for one of the monthly Baptism dates at Holy Cross, Hedwig, or Clement. One should register for Baptism Catechesis one month in advance. Let us know if you plan to attend our next Baptism Catechesis by calling the parish office at 612-789-7238.

Expectant parents need not wait until the birth of their child in order to receive the Baptism Catechesis and register for a Baptism date, but are encouraged to do so in the final two months of pregnancy.
