Baptism

Congratulations as you prepare for the Sacrament of Baptism!

We look forward to helping your family prepare for and celebrate this special sacrament of initiation into the life of the Church and St. Mary parish.

What are parents' requirements prior to their child's baptism?
Parents ought to be registered and actively participating members of St. Mary. If you are members of another parish, follow the requirements of your local parish and submit a letter giving your pastor's permission for the baptism to take place at St. Mary.

How are baptisms scheduled?
Contact Jay Deitrich at (641) 236-7486 or via email at [email protected] to register for the baptism class and/or schedule your child's baptism.

Is there a baptism class to attend?
Yes. We encourage parents and godparents to attend this class even before the birth of your child. It is offered by request.
