Baptism

Your child’s Baptism is a time for celebration in our parish community! We rejoice each time a child is baptized! We welcome this precious new life into our midst.  Baptisms at Holy Eucharist  are celebrated either during Mass with the faith community or on certain Sunday afternoons both around our beautiful baptismal font

Baptism Preparation

It is our mission to guide parents, as you are led by God, to bring your children to the waters of Baptism.  Parents and Godparents participate in an evening of formation - the class may be taken before or after the baby's birth.

Preparation Classes are held each month on a Friday evening at 7:00 pm. 2018 dates for preparation classes are: January  26, February 23, March 23, May 25, June 22, July 27,

BAPTISM INQUIRY FORM

Godparents

To be a godparent for Baptism, you must be at least 16 years old, a practicing Catholic, and have received all the sacraments of initiation: Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation. In addition, if married, the godparent must be in a valid marriage. 

Potential godparents must provide a certificate or letter from their parish certifying that they are fully initiated members of a Catholic community.  

Holy Eucharist parishioners may obtain a certificate by calling the parish office ( 609 268 8383).

Initiation for Adults

Holy Eucharist welcomes new members through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A.). We invite adults seeking to become Catholic or those who wish to complete their sacraments (Eucharist and/or Confirmation) to do so through the R.C.I.A. program. Adults who are not baptized or who are baptized in another Christian faith tradition and seek to embrace the Catholic faith, participate in an initiation process called RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults). 


Adults are fully initiated into the Catholic Church during this process, celebrating Baptism, if needed, Confirmation and First Eucharist. Holy Eucharist offers a year round RCIA process, so a person may enter the first phase, at any time throughout the year. Inquirers bring their questions about Christianity and Catholicism to the meetings, which are led by members of the RCIA team. For more information about RCIA please contact the Parish Office at 609 268 8383 Ext 100
