Baptism

INFANT BAPTISM

Infant Baptism is for children from birth up until 7 years old. All children 7 years of age and older who have not been baptized will receive their sacraments through the Rite of Christian Initiation, adapted for children.

The Sacrament of Baptism is held the first, second, and third Sunday of each month at 2:00 pm. Call Rose Davis in the Parish Office at 281-980-9812, to schedule the celebration of the sacrament of Baptism.

Baptism Requirements for St. Laurence

There are 3 requirements to get your baby baptized at St. Laurence. 
1.  You must take, or have taken, a Baptism Class in the last 5 years.  (make arrangements for a babysitter as we do not provide babysitting services).   
2.  You need to complete a Baptism Registration Form.
3.  We need a copy of the baby's official Birth Certificate, or the Verification of Facts.

Who Can Be a Godparent.
Preferably both, but least one of the godparents needs to be a practicing Catholic that has been Confirmed, (if married, they must have been married in the Catholic Church, or in a marriage recognized by the Catholic Church).  

Baptism Class
Preparation class is required for the parents of children to be baptized. It is optional for the Godparents at St. Laurence.  Parents are formed in the theology and significance of the baptismal liturgy.  The role of parents, godparents and family in the formation of these children is of the utmost importance to the Church.

The baptism class also includes preparation for the actual ceremony, and a review of what will be required of parents and godparents.

Baptism classes are held once a month from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm. Call Rose Davis in the church office at 281-980-9812 to register for the class.  Godparents are welcomed to attend, but not required for a baptism at St. Laurence.

The next scheduled classes are:
November 8th - School Dining Hall
No Baptism Classes in December
January 3rd - Parish Hall
February 14th - Parish Hall
March 14th - Parish Hall


Individual Baptism
YOU MUST BE A REGISTRED PARISHIONER, and have a serious reason that you need to schedule an individual baptism.    (281)980-9812.
