Sacraments

St. John’s: Baptisms are celebrated one Sunday a month at Noon.

St. Vincent’s: Baptisms are celebrated each Saturday at Noon.

First time parents are required to take our Baptismal Preparation Program before their child is baptized into the community.

To register for Sacraments please contact:

Renee DePietro at rdepietro@attleborocatholics.org or 508-222-1206.

As we welcome these parents in a special way, we are always looking for people to volunteer in this ministry, so these preparation programs are both learning and prayerful experiences before a couple baptizes their child.

PARENT MEETINGS:

Volunteer couples facilitate and lead discussions for parents who are having their first child baptized. The program consists of a meeting with other couples to clarify an understanding of the sacrament. There is an opportunity to meet and talk with the parish priest and deacon, and to interact with other parents.

CREATING BAPTISMAL ROBES:

Volunteers construct (cut, serge, and monogram) the babies' robes.
