Baptism of Infants and Young Children

What an exciting time for you and your family as you welcome a new child into your family. We, here at Sacred Hearts, join in your excitement and we look forward to welcoming your child into our spiritual family.

Please call the Parish Office to begin the process of scheduling your child’s Baptism. It is not necessary to have decided upon godparents to begin the process.

Parents and godparents (if they are able) are expected to attend a Baptism Preparation class unless you have attended one in the previous 3 years. You may attend this class while you are expecting your child or any month prior to your child’s Baptism date. These classes typically happen on the first Sunday of every month from 12:30-1:30pm, but are moved to the second Sunday in the event of a holiday (Labor Day weekend, New Years, etc.)

Please contact the Pastoral Center, 978-373-1281 to set up a date and time for the baptism after you given this information some careful attention. You may enter most of your information on THIS FORM if you prefer to do so digitally, but the office still needs to be called in order to schedule your baptism and baptism preparation.

Baptism of Children 5 Years and Older

Parents are asked to contact Mae Ba, Director of Faith Formation, at 978-373-1281 or via email [email protected] to begin the process.

Our prayers and support are with you. May God bless you and your family.
