Baptism

The Sacrament of Baptism for children is celebrated at 1:30 PM on the Second Sunday of the month in Spanish and the Third Sunday of the month in English. Parents need to contact the rectory to set up an appointment to make arrangements for the baptism of their child and register for the baptismal class which is held the First Tuesday of each month in Spanish and the Second Tuesday of each month in English. Baptisms in Vietnamese can be arranged by contacting Fr. Vincent at the Rectory at 215-743-2600.

Adults seeking to be baptized participate in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). For more information about the RCIA, visit the Faith Formation page.
