Baptisms are done on the first, second and third Sundays of the month at 1:30 p.m. or at any Mass on any Sunday. The are not done during lent and after Easter till Pentecost they are done at a Mass only. Please call the Parish office to schedule 908-852-3320.
A copy of your child's birth certificate is needed as well as your attendance as well as your Godparents, at a Baptismal Prepration Class.
Godparents must be a Catholic in good standing, which means, they have to be at least 16 years of age and have received all their sacraments and if they are married they would have to be married within the Catholic church. Godparents have to get a Certificate of Eligibilty from their current Parish.
One Godparent is sufficient but if you have two, one must be a man and one a woman.
You could also have one Godparent who is a Catholic in good standing and one could be a Christian witness meaning baptized in another Christian faith and baptizes in the name of the Holy Trinity. The Christian witness would have to provide a baptismal certificate.
There is not charge for baptisms but a donation would be most greatly appreciated.
