Baptism is the sacrament which frees us from our sins and binds us to the Body of Christ. It is the gate through which we enter the Church.
If you would like to schedule a Baptism (for a child under two years of age) at either St. Joseph or St. Raphael parish please contact the office and ask to speak with either Fr. Bill Kramer or Deacon Norm Horstman. Fr. Marv Hackman and Deacon John Collins also perform Baptisms. The registration form for Baptisms is located (add link to form). You will also find the form that Godparents are asked to complete (add link to form). Parents are asked to attend our Baptism preparation class. You will be able to register for that class when you contact the parish.
If you would like to schedule a baptism for a child who is over two years old, please see our Children’s Catechumenate page for more information.
If you would like information on adult baptism, please see our RCIA page for more information.
