Who we are…
The Baptism Prep Ministry consists of trained couples who desire to live out their own baptismal promise to share the Good News of Jesus Christ by drawing others to him. They are parents, grandparents and teachers who strive every day to pass on their faith in their own family. They face the same obstacles and challenges we all face in our lives, and in the midst of busy schedules commit of their time and talents to facilitate one to two classes a year.
Want to share of your family’s experience with Baptism?
Potential facilitators are asked to initially observe or participate in one of the Baptism Preparation classes. Once they have done this, they meet with the Family Life Coordinator to go over the program in more detail or attend a group session led by one of the trained facilitating couples who will go through the facilitator’s manual. New facilitators will be paired with a more experienced couple for their first class. Childcare is freely provided for both facilitators and participants.
We ask that all facilitators be baptized Christians, one of whom should be Catholic and practicing their faith. There are opportunities for all of the facilitators to gather during the year for more spiritual enrichment and social events.
Baptism classes are scheduled as a one time, three hour class. Facilitators are asked to arrive prior to the beginning of class to finish preparing the room.
