Pastor's Notes on The Sacrament of Baptism at the Basilica (July 21, 2019)

The Sacrament of Baptism for infants and small children is celebrated at the Basilica as a community, normally at the following times:

2nd Saturday of each month at 10:30 am - in English

3rd Sunday of each month at 2:45 pm - in Spanish

Parents should contact the priest or the parish office in advance to schedule the Baptism of your child, and to ensure that you have received the required formation prior to the Baptism of your child.

English-speaking parents, please view the "Reborn" video series, which can be accessed here using our parish FORMED subscription. After you have viewed the three videos, please contact Fr. Blatchford to complete your preparation.

Spanish-speaking parents, please contact Sister Imelda Quechol (706-676-3411) to prepare for the Baptism of your child.

Padres hispanos, comunĂ­quense con la hermana Imelda Quechol (706-676-3411) para prepararse para el bautismo de su hijo.
