Baptism at St. Ignatius

We look forward to celebrating your child’s Baptism and officially welcoming them into the life of St. Ignatius parish! At St. Ignatius, baptisms for infants and children (newborn - 7 years) are celebrated during designated weekend masses throughout the year so that we can introduce the child and their family to the greater parish community that is pledging to support their lifelong journey of faith.  

Parents prepare by participating in one of the Infant Baptism Preparation Sessions. We seek to provide a hospitable, small group setting for our sessions, so the class size is limited and can fill up quickly.


Please return your Baptism Registration Form as early as possible to sign up for the Preparation Session and Baptism dates that work best for your family. The Preparation Sessions are currently held on Zoom. Godparents are highly encouraged to attend, but not required. If you have additional questions, please contact Patty Frangipani, at 

Note:  Baptism is usually scheduled for the first Saturday of the month Sept. through May with some exceptions  (with the required preparation classes being offered 9 days before each baptism via Zoom).  

Zoom class dates:

September 23, 2021 Zoom class  with Baptism date on September 25th  at the 5PM Mass

November 4, 2021 Zoom class with Baptism date on November 6th at the 5PM Mass


If you are ready to have your infant baptized, please fill out the registration form.
