Our parish family rejoices in the birth of your children! They are signs to us that we are growing in numbers and holiness. Baptism is the gateway to the rest of the sacraments of the Church, and as such, ensuring that families are properly disposed to introduce their child(ren) to a sacramental life is essential.
Therefore, parents wishing to have their child(ren) baptized at Ss Peter and Paul Church must be REGISTERED, REGULARLY ATTEND, and ACTIVELY SUPPORT (either with Envelopes or Parish Pay) the parish for at least 6 months in order to schedule a baptismal date.
Parents are also are expected to attend one baptism preparation meeting prior to the baptism with the Godparents, if the Godparents are able. (Parents are asked only to attend the session for their first child.) This meeting ideally should take place during the mother’s pregnancy. Please register for one of the session listed below by calling the parish office at 201-659-2276.
The role of a Godparent/Sponsor is a blessing for both the child and the Godparent/Sponsor. Parents should choose them wisely. At least one of the Godparents/Sponsors must be an active and participating member of the Catholic Church. Those who attend Ss Peter and Paul Church will be known to our parish staff. Those who live in other parishes must be able to get a Sponsor Certification from the Pastor at their home parish or in the parish where they practice their faith.
Please keep in mind that baptisms are not scheduled during Advent and Lent. A listing of Baptism preparation meetings and ceremonies can be found below. Please do make any definite reservations until you have received the confirmation letter for the baptismal date.
