Baptism

CONGRATULATIONS on the birth of your child!!  Each birth is full of wonder, renewing our dreams of a better world and our desire to work toward it.  The decision to baptize your child is a joyful and important one for your whole family.  Baptism is also a time of great happiness for the entire parish community as we welcome a new member.

All parents must attend a Baptism Preparation class. Pre-registration is required prior to the class and to pick a baptism date. Please call Sue D’Alessandro in the Parish Office (630- 833-7730) to register for the class and Baptism.

 

GODPARENTS

Catholic Godparents (16 years and older who have completed all their Sacraments through Confirmation and are a practicing Catholic) are required to fill out a Certificate of Eligibility form and have the pastor of their current church sign and seal it.  These signed forms are due back to the Parish Office no later than TWO WEEKS prior to the Baptism or sooner.  Forms will be given to the parents once registered for the class and baptism.
