Preparation Session

Parents are required to attend an hour-long preparation session. The session is arranged by contacting one of the parish priests and is scheduled at your mutual convenience. You do not need to wait until the child is born to attend the session. The date and time of the baptism are scheduled during the preparation session. The session will focus on the meaning of the Sacrament of Baptism, the responsibilities of the parents and godparents in teaching the faith of the Church to the child, and the celebration of the rite. If the child is between the ages of 7 and 14 years, it will be necessary to arrange a brief interview of the child with the priest who will be conducting the baptism. This interview is to ascertain the child's sufficient awareness and knowledge of the Sacrament. At the session, the birth certificate should be presented.  Baptism Guideline / Checklist.

Prayer for an End to Human Trafficking

Dear Heavenly Father, we come to you across the world in prayer to pray for the abolishment of human trafficking in all its forms. Save the victims, help them to receive the proper guidance, counseling, shelter and healing that is needed for them to overcome this violent act, we humbly pray. Flood the hearts of those committing these acts, so they may come to know Your Grace. Thank you, Lord, for your angels here on earth who serve and protect these vulnerable peoples. Through the intercession of St. Josephine Bakhita, Patroness of charity and patience, bring us the spirit of wisdom and love. God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, be our protector. Grant us the courage, strength, and ability to fight successfully to end the scourge of human trafficking. We ask this through,

Christ Our Lord. Amen.
