Baptismal Preparation

Here at Saints Peter and Paul, a Baptismal Preparation Class is offered the first Sunday of every month at 4:00 p.m. in the Holy Family Room of the office building. Registration is required. This class is for all first-time parents who wish to have their child baptized in the Catholic Church.  We encourage families to attend the class before the birth of their child and godparents are urged to attend as well.  During this session, there will be discussion of:  What is Baptism, What is the Church’s teaching on the Sacrament of Baptism, Parent responsibilities and commitments, Who can be a Godparent and their responsibilities and much more.  We will further discuss the celebration and set a date for the celebration to take place.

Libby Downs, Pastoral Associate, conducts the Baptismal Preparation Session.  If you would like to register for the class or just need to discuss and plan the Baptismal Celebration, please e-mail her at or call her at the parish office at (270) 885-8522.
