St. Patrick Parish Baptism Guidelines


Can my child be baptized at St. Patrick Parish?

Yes.  Arrangements for Baptism must be made by calling the parish office manager. Please do not set a date before you consult with the parish office manager. This applies to parishioners and non-parishioners.
  • A non-parishioner is one who lives outside the parish boundaries and is not registered.
  • Registration means: To be on the parish files and financially supporting the parish by using envelopes for the weekly offertory for a minimum of six (6) months.

How do I arrange for a baptism?   

Infant Baptism
  • In order to have a child baptized at St. Patrick Parish, first time parents are required to attend a baptism preparation class.
  • Classes are held once a month, on the first Tuesday, at 6:00 pm in St. Patrick Church.
  • Baptism Information Forms will be provided and baptism dates selected by contacting the parish office. Advance registration is required.
  • Baptisms are scheduled to be celebrated on the first and third Saturdays of each month at 9:00 am or 10:00 am.  
  • For more information, please call the church office.  
Baptism of Older Children
  • Children must be baptized prior to receiving the sacraments of 1st Penance and 1st Eucharist.
  • If you have a child who is 7 years old or older and has not yet been baptized, you should contact the parish office at (520) 432-5753.


I'm an adult.  How can I be baptized in the church?

The Catholic Church traditionally recognizes baptisms performed by other Christian denominations. Adults who have not been baptized and who wish to receive the sacrament of baptism at St. Patrick Parish should contact the church office at (520) 432-5753 for information about our Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) process.
