Baptism

"Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit  and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission: “Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water in the word.”                                                                                             -Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1213

Infant Baptism

First-time parents must attend a Pre-Baptism class.  Godparents must have a sponsor certificate from their registered  parish. Baptisms are regularly offered once a month at 12:30 pm, following the 11:30 am Mass. 

Please contact the Parish Office (cbirchfield@stmarkcleveland.com) for more information on the Pre-Baptism Class and Baptismal information.
