Parents planning to christen babies must attend baptism session

Baptism is the first sacrament of initiation. It is a beautiful ceremony that welcomes the baby (or adult) into the Catholic faith and to free them from the original sin that we were all born with. It links you to the grace and love of God. Symbols of water, light and oil are used.

We have instituted a new program for families who will be baptizing their child in our church.

All parents who would like their child to receive the Sacrament of Baptism must attend the preparation session before their child is baptized.

When you contact the rectory (315-735-1482) to set up your child’s baptism, you also will set up the baptism prep session as well. The session explains the sacrament, its symbols and meaning and much more.

For information, contact Anne Elacqua at 315-941-7447 or
We look forward to meeting you and your family.
