Baptismal Planning

Baptisms are scheduled on the first Sunday of the month following the 11:00 a.m. Mass at St. Patrick Church.

Baptismal Preparation:

Family Baptismal preparatory class is to be completed prior to scheduling a child’s Baptism.  Please call the Church office at 508-548-1065 to make an appointment for family preparation and instruction.  If the parents are unable to attend the Baptismal preparatory class at St. Patrick, then they may attend a Baptismal preparatory class at another parish and present a certificate  of completion at the time of scheduling a child’s baptism.

Expectant mothers may register for the Baptismal preparatory class prior to delivery as the family’s schedule allows.  The class usually lasts about 1 1/4 hours.



Godparents (one male and one female) must be:

  1. Over 18 years of age
  2. a fully-initiated Catholic (Baptism/Eucharist/Confirmation)
  3. a practicing Catholic

Catholic godparents must present a certificate signed by their pastor indicating they meet the above requirements.  This certificate is filed with the church secretary before a Baptism is scheduled.
