At Gesù Catholic Church we celebrate individual Baptisms not group Baptisms. Baptisms are celebrated on Saturdays and Sundays only. We require the following papers and preparations from parents and godparents:
• Birth Certificate:
A copy of the child’s birth certificate.
• Letter of Permission:
If the child lives outside of Gesù Catholic Church’s boundaries, then a letter of permission is required from the parish the child belongs to.
• Pre-Baptismal conference:
Both parents and godparents are required to attend a pre-baptismal meeting to understand the responsibilities of this sacrament of initiation.
• Gesù asks for a donation for the baptism.
Please contact the rectory, six weeks in advance, to learn of available dates and times for the Baptism and to schedule the pre-baptismal conference.
We can be reached at 305-379-1424, Monday through Friday from 9:00 am -2:oo pm.
