St. Angela Merici Catholic Church joyfully welcomes your family for the preparation and celebration of the Sacrament of Baptism. By baptizing your child, you are initiating him or her into the Body of Christ.

You are also accepting the responsibility of training your child in the lifelong practice of the Catholic faith. The Godparents you select are to be prepared to help you in your duty as Christian parents and to be trustworthy witnesses and examples in the faith for your child.

Before completing the registration form, be sure to carefully read the guidelines for the sacrament of Baptism for children under 7.
