Baptism at St. Paul

General Information

Baptism At St. Paul

Baptism is the first sacrament in a lifelong journey with Christ and the Catholic Church. We at St. Paul are committed to making this sacrament accessible and available to the members of our parish and community. To that end, we prioritize our active parishioners for the sacrament of Baptism. If you are not an active member of St. Paul, we ask that you share your connection to our Church if you wish to have your child baptized here. Please visit our office during Baptism Intake Days on Wednesday evenings from 5:00 PM-7:00 PM to get started.
