Baptism Class

Baptism 101 Video

Wanting to have your child baptized?

The Baptism class is designed as a ministry to parents who desire Baptism for their child. The class consists of one required class before or after the birth of the first child, but prior to the Baptism. The session  includes the theology of Baptism, the symbolism within the sacrament, and the vocation of parenthood. Baptism classes are offered the second Thursday of each month at 7:00 pm in the Library in the Church Narthex and are facilitated by trained parishioner couples. Both parents are encouraged to participate, whether Catholic or not.  Pre-registration for the class is required.  Call the Religious Education Office at 402-558-1898.

Volunteer Opportunities

Baptism class facilitators meet with parents prior to the Baptism of their child to assist in preparing them for their child’s reception of the sacrament.  Facilitators are usually, but not restricted to, couples.  The Archdiocesan Baptismal program, Called by Name, is used to teach the class.  Materials are provided, as is training.

The Baptism class is offered once a month on Thursday evenings in the Parish Center.  It lasts a little more than an hour.  Facilitator teams sign up to teach the class three times during the year.  All of the facilitators gather once during the year for an evening of renewal.

If you enjoy working with families, especially as they begin the sacramental journey with their children, this ministry is for you!
