Congratulations on your choice to celebrate one of the greatest gifts you can share with another person: the gift of Faith.
In order to begin the preparations for the baptism, please read and complete the forms below and contact Lisa Utz at the parish office. Baptisms will not be scheduled until all forms have been completed and returned, and class has been fulfilled. Baptisms are celebrated on Sundays at 11:30a, as the celebrants schedule permits.
**Please note: By canon law, you must be a registered member of St. Bartholomew’s in order for us to celebrate a baptism. If you are not currently an active and registered member, please take a moment to do so we can move forward with the baptismal planning.
If you currently belong to another parish, but are requesting to have your baptism take place at St. Bartholomew’s, we will need a letter of permission from your current parish. You can obtain this permission by contacting the parish office of your current parish.
Parents are required to attend a preparation class held on the first Sunday of each month at the Parish Center from 1:00 PM-2:00 PM. The classes may be attended before the child is born. Please contact Lisa Utz at the Parish Center 410-239-8881 for registration information and scheduling.
