Parents are encouraged to contact St. John Neumann during their pregnancy or shortly after birth to discuss Baptism Preparation Classes and the actual Baptism. A Baptism Preparation Class is required for parents who are baptizing their first child or who have not baptized within the past 5 years. Classes are held onsite at St. John Neumann approximately once a month. Baptism celebrations are scheduled once or twice a month, typically at 1:30 pm following the Noon Mass. For more information about Baptism, the scheduled dates/times for classes, and to register for classes, please contact Theresa Burdick at 651-209-8972.
To learn more about baptizing a child who is 7 years or older, please contact Fr. Mark Pavlak at 651-209-8581 to learn more about the Christian Initiation Process for children.
