Baptism

Baptism is the first step in our initiation into the Christian Community. Bringing your child into the Church through the Sacrament of Baptism includes the following essentials:

  1. Register in the parish if you are not already a member, or provide a permission letter from your pastor for the baptism to take place at St. John Vianney.
  2. Attend a Baptism Preparation Class at the church. Register by calling the Parish office at 651-451-1863.
  3. Provide a copy of the birth certificate.
  4. Complete a Baptismal Information Sheet.

**If you have attended a Baptism Preparation Class at St. John Vianney in the last three years, you only need to complete steps 3-4 to schedule a Baptism date.

Schedule a Baptism

Once the above steps are completed, a Baptism date can be scheduled. Parents can register in the parish and attend a Baptism Preparation Class before the child is born.

Baptisms will be celebrated on Sundays upon request.

Please contact the parish office to register for a class.
