Baptism, Reconciliation, Communion, Confirmation
(Infants & Children)
At least one godparent must be a registered and practicing Catholic. The godparent will need a letter from their parish if not a member of Divine Mercy. Families seeking baptism should be registered in the parish. Parents are asked to call the Parish Office and schedule a meeting with Mary Frances Coburn. They can then register for a Baptism Preparation Class. These classes meet quarterly and are always held on a Saturday from 9:00 AM – noon. Upon completing the class and the necessary paperwork, the date can be scheduled. Baptisms are held on the first Sunday of each month (no baptisms take place during Lent) at 10:30 AM.
Please contact Mary Frances Coburn for more information.
Adults wishing to receive Holy Baptism for the first time must attend RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) sessions. For more information please contact Mary Frances Coburn
