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.

A parish Baptism Catechesis is held on the second Saturday of the month at 9:45am at Holy Cross, in the church.

All parents desiring baptism for a child under the age of seven years must attend the Baptism Catechesis before we can schedule a Baptism date at Holy Cross, St. Hedwig, or St. Clement. Parents must attend a Baptism Catechesis at least one month in advance of desired date, but we strongly encourage attending the Catechesis at least two and preferably three months before the desired date so as to maximize the opportunity of securing the date.

There is no need to sign up or register for the Baptism Catechesis. You are invited simply to attend the event and afterwards will be eligible to register for your date, which is done from this page.

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 or three months of pregnancy.
