“Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit, and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission: Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water in the word.” Catechism of the Catholic Church 1213

Infant Baptism at CCUP usually takes place the fourth Sunday of each month after the 11 a.m. Mass; however, Father Jeremy is willing to do it anytime that works for his schedule and the family’s schedule.  It is also no problem to have an outside priest or deacon perform the baptism.

Parishioners Tom and Lynn Guitteau conduct Baptism prep classes upon appointment. These classes are only required for the first infant of any family being baptized. For any questions and to set up a meeting with Tom and Lynn, please contact our Parish Secretary Becky at 419-531-4992 or

For each child being baptized, even if no prep is necessary, the following form needs to be completed:
