“Baptism is birth into the new life in Christ. In accordance with the Lord’s will, it is necessary for salvation, as is the Church herself, which we enter by Baptism” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, #1277)

Baptismal preparation classes at Sacred Heart are held as needed. Baptism preparation involves an interview and attendance of parents and Godparents at a Baptism Preparation Class. To schedule Baptism and Baptism Preparation Class, please contact the Parish Liturgy Office 2 – 3 months before the anticipated Baptism date, at 231-264-8087 ext.202.

If your child is of the age of reason (7 years) or older, and has not been baptized, you will be asked to participate in a Rite of Christian Initiation process, where the youth will receive the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Euchartist. Please call the parish office for more information concerning this process.
