Registration Form for Infant Baptism

Baptism Information and Guidelines

 

Parents:

You must be a registered parishioner of St. Pius X Church for at least 4 months, or if from another parish, have a letter of permission from your Pastor.  The Registration Form for Child Baptism below must be completed and turned into the parish office, along with the $10.00 registration fee, prior to attending the class.  Along with the form we will need a copy of the child’s birth certificate.

Parent and Godparents must attend baptism class either here at St. Pius X Church or another parish.  If at St. Pius, the class is held on the 1st Saturday of each month at 10:00am in Community Center #2.  If attending at another parish, you must bring a letter from the parish confirming that you have attended the class.

Baptism’s are held on the 3rd Saturday of each month at 10:00am.  If a special date is needed, you will need to talk to the Deacon conducting the baptism class or one of our parish Priest’s to see if they are available, as well as it will need to be scheduled on the parish calendar in the parish office.

People from other parishes that wish to baptize their child here will need written permission from their parish.

If the child is over 6 years old, they need to take catechism classes.  You can contact Sr. Barbara Netek, our Director of Religious Education, at (361)993-4053.

 

Godparents: (only one male and one female or just one godparent)

If they are a married couple:  They have to have been married in the Catholic Church, if not, they cannot be godparents.

If they are married, but not to each other:  One of them must be a practicing Catholic.

If they are single: One of them must be a practicing Catholic.
