Baptism incorporates us with Christ and forms us into God’s People. It is the first sacrament of initiation. The Catholic Church baptizes people of all age – from infants to adults. To help prepare individuals and families for this sacrament, the Church offers various forms of formation.
Adults who are interested in becoming baptized or would like to learn more about being Catholic are invited to call the Parish Office: 219-663-0044. We are waiting for your phone call. WANT TO BECOME CATHOLIC
We welcome you and your child!
We want to do whatever we can to help make the sacrament of Baptism a Graced moment for your family and Saint Mary’s Church.
Parents who ask for the sacrament of Baptism for their child are giving their child a precious gift – the gift of Faith. In view of the tremendous responsibility accepted by the parent at a child’s baptism, Saint Mary’s provides our parents with a wonderful sacramental preparation experience. It begins with a telephone call to our Parish Office (219-663-0044).
After parents have completed their preparation, the Baptism of their child will be scheduled.
Baptism of infant children is ordinarily scheduled during one of the weekend Masses on Saturday evening or Sunday morning. Baptisms can also be scheduled after the 12:00 noon Mass on the first or third Sunday of the month.
Parents of children above the age of six who are interested in having their child baptized are invited to call Mrs. Marian Weeks in our Faith Formation Office (219-663-7934). She will be happy to introduce you to our Order of Christian Initiation for Children.
