Baptism

INFANT BAPTISM

Infant Baptism is for children from birth up until the age of 7 years of age. 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.

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. Different parenting styles are also discussed, introducing the idea that parenthood is a ministry to which we bring our own special gifts. 

Baptism classes are usually held on the second Saturday of the month (excluding July and December) from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm, usually  in the RE Center. Call Rose Davis in the church office at 281-980-9812 to register for the class.  Godparents are encouraged to attend, but not required for a baptism at St. Laurence.
