"Jesus answered, 'Amen, amen, I say to you, no one can enter the kingdom of God without being born of water and Spirit.'" (Jn. 3:5)

 

Parents requesting Baptism for their child must be registered and active members of our parish.

Both parents and godparents are required to attend a Baptism Preparation class which is offered in both English and Spanish.  

Godparent requirements are as follows: There must be at least one godparent, although it is customary to have two godparents. When there are two, one must be male and the other female. Godparents must meet all the following criteria: They cannot be the parent of the child, must be a practicing Catholic, and have to be at least 16 years of age or older and have received their sacraments of Baptism, First Eucharist, and Confirmation. If they are married, their marriage must be recognized by the Catholic church. A baptized person who is not Catholic may serve as a Christian witness together with a Catholic godparent. Please contact the office at 630.668.0918 x 0 for more information.

If the child is the age of 7 or older, a two-year preparation is required for Baptism and First Eucharist.  Parents should contact our Religious Education Office at 630.668.0918 x 613 for more information.
