Baptism is the Sacrament through which we become members of the Church and children of God. The Sacrament of Baptism is administered on the first Sunday of each month (effective October 2012) following the 11:00 a.m. Mass. A Baptismal Seminar is held on the last Monday evening prior to the Baptismal date at 6:00 p.m., both parents and sponsors must attend. You should be a registered parishioner of St. Andrew the Apostle Parish to have your child baptized here. Although, if you are from another parish, you must have a letter from your pastor giving permission to have your child baptized here at St. Andrew the Apostle Roman Catholic Church. There are forms that need to be completed before you attend the baptismal seminar – Baptismal form, Godparents form, Parental Consent, and a copy of the Birth Certificate must be submitted. If you had a child baptized in the last 3 years, you do not need to attend the seminar. Please contact Mary Ann at the Parish Office at 504-393-2334 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
