Baptism at Holy Cross

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

  • Holy Cross (Saturday 5:45pm after 4:30 Mass)
  • 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.

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.

Children seven years or older must complete our faith formation year for Baptism preparation. Click here for information on enrollment in Children's Faith Formation.
