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 the 9:00 am and 11:00 am 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 a picture 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
