Sacrament of Baptism

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.
