Parishioners are invited and encouraged to have their children baptized at St. Paul Catholic Church. The Diocese of Sacramento requires that parents and Godparents must participate in the baptismal preparation program prior to the baptism being scheduled.
Parents must contact the Parish office at 916-381-5200 to register for the baptismal preparation program and should be prepared to provide the office with information regarding the Godparents. The Parish staff will provide information regarding the baptism, schedule the preparation class and the following baptism ceremony, and provide a baptismal candle.
The following information is provided for your convenience in planning this most important Sacrament of your child's life. Please remember that you must be pre-registered by the office for the class and the baptism.
The baptismal preparation program class is held once a month, usually on the 3rd Tuesday of each month. You will be provided with the exact date and time when you call to register. Please arrive by 6:30 p.m. to register in classroom 8 at the Religious Education Center.
Baptisms are usually held on the 4th Saturday at 10:00 am in the church proper. The Parish office will provide you with your scheduled date and time. Please arrive by 9:30 a.m. to register and be escorted to your seating assignments.
