Baptism Preparation

baptism-espiritu-santo-catholicWe at Espiritu Santo congratulate you! God has blessed you with a child. Now, you are presenting that child for baptism in the Catholic Church. We welcome all in our Catholic Community, as well as those from other faiths. Through the mystery of baptism, your child will be born again. Through baptism, your child will become a disciple, part of the body of Christ and a valued member of our community. It is our hope that through this Sacrament your family will grow in faith, share our concerns, serve others, and join us in the praise of God.

Classes are usually held the first Saturday of every month in the John Bosco Center, Room 1 from 9:30 am – 11:00 am with refreshments.  Infants and Godparents  are welcomed but not required to attend.

Register for the required Baptism Class by calling the Church Office at 727.726.8477.  Please allow 2-3 months for preparation prior to your child’s baptism beginning with Baptism Class.  Please don’t place any unnecessary pressure on you or your out of town family and friends by selecting a date for the reception of the sacrament before you’ve been to class and have all the necessary documents returned.  Since we have nearly 200 Baptisms a year here, we ask that you complete the class and paperwork before a date is selected.

In the class the theology of the sacrement is presented; the leader answers parent's questions, and assists in filling out necessary forms.

Baptism is the basic sacrament of initiation into our faith.  Filled with signs and symbolism, it was so clearly given by John to Jesus that day in the Jordan River. The Baptism Blue Booklet reviews the theology of and the reasons why we have the sacrament of Baptism.  Please read this prior to attending our Baptism Class.  

In this Baptism Forms Packet are the forms that need to be completed and signed prior to the scheduling of the baptism for your child.  Simply print, complete, sign and bring them to class.  There will be blank forms available at the class as well.
