The Sacrament of Baptism

For children under the age of 7 years

This is a joyous time for your family as you take this step in the faith life of your child and we encourage parents to baptize children within the first weeks of life. If your child is seven years of age or older, there is a different procedure so please contact the parish office for more information.

Parents, please read the following information carefully as it is meant to help you prepare for the sacred celebration of your child’s Baptism. Once you have read all of the information, you may fill out the online registration form on right side of the page. Only parents or legal guardians may request the sacrament of Baptism for their child and may complete the online registration form . We cannot baptize the child without the parent’s knowledge and participation.

Please note: The process of baptizing a child at Our Lady of Guadalupe has changed and parents who have baptized a child here in recent years may notice that some requirements and procedures are now different. If you have any questions or concerns with these changes or would like to understand why these changes have occurred, please contact the parish office at your convenience.
