The Sacrament of Baptism is available for newborns, young children and for adults, the first step is to call the parish office 305-238-7562 and we will guide you through the process. The preparation for the sacrament depends on the age of the person being baptized.

Parents of children 5 years or younger will meet with a Deacon and both parents and the godparents will need to attend a baptism class. The Baptism class is presented in English on the third (3rd) Wednesday of each month and in Spanish on the second (2nd) Thursday of each month; all classes are at 7:30 PM. Children older than five years will prepare for the sacrament by attending Religious Education (CCD) classes. To enroll your child in the Religious Education (CCD) program you may call the Religious Education Office 305-238-7562 Ext. 1500.

Baptisms for Spanish speaking parishioners may be scheduled on the last Sunday of each month at 1:45 PM. Baptisms for English speaking parishioners may be scheduled on 1st, 2nd, 3rd and sometimes 4th Sunday of each month when we have 5 Sundays at 1:45 PM except on special Holy Days or holidays like Easter, Christmas, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, etc. We do not have private Baptisms.
