Baptism

Baptism

"Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father,
and of the Son,  and of the Holy Spirit."
-Matthew 28:19

Parents who are interested in having their child baptized are required to attend a Pre-baptism class. (If you have attended the class within 5 years, while preparing for another child's baptism, you do not need to repeat the class.)  
The classes are offered once per month on Sunday at 7:00 PM in the Church basement History Room.  Please use the west entrance.  Pre-registration is not required.

Instructions will be given at class on how to schedule your child's baptism.  We offer baptisms on the fourth Sunday of the month during any Mass (except for special services). We only offer baptisms outside of Mass once a month on the second Sunday of the Month after the 9 am, 11:00 am or 5:00 pm Masses.

Documents needed: We require a copy of your child's birth certificate (from the state) for recording purposes.  Please bring a copy with you to pre-baptism class or email to the Parish Office prior to your child's baptism.  

If you are not a registered member of St. Michael's Parish, you will be required to provide a "letter of permission" from the Pastor of your parish, to have your child baptized at St. Michael's.  This is a courtesy practiced in the Fargo Diocese.

If you have attended within 5 years, please fill out and mail this form and a copy of your child's state-issued birth certificate to us or email to:  parishoffice@stmichaelsgf.com
