This day will be the beginning of life in Christ and life in the Church for your child. We hope as well that it will be an opportunity for recommitment to your faith for yourselves. Please keep the following information in mind in preparation for your child’s baptism:

  1. Parish Registration: Parents of the child to be baptized should be registered members of a Champaign County Region Catholic Parish. If you are not registered, please register at the Parish Office.
  2. Baptism Class: Parents are required to attend a Baptism Preparation Class before the baptism. Please contact the parish office for more information on upcoming classes.
    • You can receive credit for a previously attended class only if it was within the past two years.
    • Class at a Different Parish: You may attend a baptism preparation class at another parish. However, prior to the Baptism ceremony, you must provide a letter from that parish indicating the date and time of the class you attended.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is about the mercy of Jesus Christ. Honestly confessing our sins reconciles us to God and restores us to His grace and intimate friendship. Confession breaks the power of shame and hurt of sin, and restores and revitalizes our relationships within the community of faith in the life of our Church.

Confessions are held in Reconciliation Rooms

St. Mary
Wednesday 7:30-8:30 pm
Friday 11:00-11:45 am
Saturday 11:00-11:45 am
