Baptisms can be celebrated within the context of Mass at one of our weekend Liturgies, at either 5:00 PM on Saturday, or on Sundays at 8:00 AM or 10:30 AM If you choose to have your child baptized outside of the Mass, the sacrament is typically celebrated on Saturdays between 10:00 AM and 3:00 PM
All of our sacraments are available in both English and Spanish.
If your child is past the age of 7 years old, and has not been baptized, then a special program of faith formation will be developed for them in conjunction with our Parish Religious Education (PRE) program held on Wednesday Evenings from 6:30 - 8:00 PM in the St. Bellarmine Religious Education Center (BREC). The children who are part of this faith formation program will receive the Sacrament of Baptism at the Easter Vigil Mass.
