Sacraments

Baptism
Baptisms are typically held on the second Sunday of the month at 12:30pm. Please see the official dates below.

Call the Rectory (508-543-7726) for information and to register your child for Baptism. We will need the names of the Godparents at this time. Godparents MUST BE confirmed Catholics. You may have one Godparent or two; one female and one male. Please click on Choosing a Godparent for information on how to choose a good Godparent.

First-time parents are expected to prepare for the Sacrament of Baptism by attending a Baptismal Preparation Class.  These classes take place on certain Sundays at 12:30pm in the Murphy Room of the Church.  See the official dates below.  Please call the rectory to schedule this date.  Due to unforeseen events, we occasionally need to cancel a class.
