• Baptism Alone Word1x.png

In baptism we become children of God. Every human being created is born a beloved creature of God. To become a child of God our nature must change. Baptism through the Grace of the Holy Spirit transforms us to become children of God. 

Preparation Sessions for New and Returning Parents

Preparation Sessions are required for new parents or every 4 years. Belonging: Baptism in the Family of God is designed to provide you with an incredible encounter with Jesus and with the Church. The program we have chosen for you here at Our Lady of the Lake will prepare you to have your children baptized and to open your hearts to understand more fully WHY this is a critical step in your child’s life. You will discover how your child becomes a “child of God” and that in the Church, and you and your children will always have a place where you belong.

Info for Parents

The family asking for their child to be baptized at Our Lady of the Lake has to be a registered member of our faith community or provide a letter from their current parish.
