Baptism of Infants

Back to Sacraments

Parents asking for Baptism of an infant at St. Bartholomew are required to be registered members of the parish and attend a workshop to renew their understanding of the sacrament and the details of its celebration here.  Baptism workshops are held on the second Sunday of the month at 11:45 a.m. (after the 10:30 Mass) unless otherwise posted. Baptisms are celebrated on designated Sundays at noon, except during the Lenten season.

To register for a Baptism workshop and to set a date for the celebration of the sacrament, please contact the parish office at 952-473-6601.

Choosing Godparents 

Parents must choose at least one Godparent, though; there may be two, one of each gender. Godparents must be a practicing Catholic, at least 16 years of age and confirmed in the Catholic Church. A person of another Christian faith may stand as a witness.
