“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

Child 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.

Baptism prep classes are conducted upon appointment. These classes are only required for the first child of any family being baptized.

For any questions or to schedule a Baptism, please call the parish office at 419-531-4992 or email


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