Baptism

Baptism:

  • Infant Baptisms:  Parents should contact the priest to schedule a baptism instruction class and to schedule the baptism.  Please call the parish office for an appointment:  912-681-6726.
  • Older Children:  Children over the age of seven will prepare for the sacrament through the RCIC (Rite of Christian Initiation of Children).  These classes meet on Sunday mornings at 9 a.m. beginning in September.
  • Adult Baptisms:  Adults who wish to join the Catholic Church and have not been baptized “in the name of the father, the son and the Holy Spirit” will prepare for the sacrament through participation in RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) classes, which meet weekly beginning in the fall.
