Sacrament of Baptism

Baptisms are typically scheduled for Sundays at 2 pm in the church. Those wishing to have a child baptized at the National Shrine must be members of the parish. One parent must be a Confirmed Roman Catholic. One of the godparents (one male, one female) must be a Confirmed Roman Catholic.

To sign up for a baptismal class (required for baptism, usually held on the first Wednesday of the month), please contact Charlene Lewandowski in the Rectory at 248.541.4122 ext 410. clewandowski@shrinechurch.com
