Infant Baptism

Congratulations on being new parents! One responsibility of being a parent is sharing your faith with your children. To assist new parents as they begin this responsibility, we offer this required class for members of the Paulist Center Community. We also welcome to this baptism preparation class, parents or prospective Godparents who are members of the Catholic Church in the Archdiocese of Boston.

The preparation program includes:

  • A presentation on the history and theology of baptism
  • Explanation of the ritual signs and symbols used in the Sacrament of Baptism
  • Discussion of the roles of parents and Godparents

This preparation class is offered on the 3rd Saturday of odd months (Jan., March, May, July, Sept., Nov.) In light of the pandemic and health concerns, our classes will be held via the Zoom platform.  Due to other circumstances, the July 2021 session will be held on July 10 at 10am.

For more information or to register for the class, please contact Fr. Chuck Cunniff, CSP.
