Fr. Donald Snyder baptizes an infant

"You have asked to have your children baptized… you are accepting the responsibility of training them in the practice of the faith.  It will be your duty to bring them up to keep God's commandments as Christ taught us, by loving God and our neighbor.  Do you clearly understand what you are undertaking?"
[Rite of Baptism for Children]

The Sacrament of Baptism is first among the sacraments of initiation leading to full membership in the Catholic Church.  For couples preparing for the Baptism of their child, St. Ladislas parish offers an evening class four times a year - February, May, August & November. Contact the parish office 835-2300 to  register for this program and discuss the Baptism of their child. Teens and adults exploring the Sacrament of Baptism should inquire about the RCIA program.
