Pre-Jordan Program

Baptism Preparation

Since parents are seen as their child’s primary teachers, the Pre-Jordan Program seeks to offer parents both the support of the community and an opportunity for reassessing their own faith and responsibilities. After meeting with a priest and prior to their child’s Baptism, parents are required to attend a brief Pre-Jordan session which includes a review of the history and theology of the Sacrament of Baptism as well as the movement that will be needed on the Sunday of the actual Baptism. Godparents are also encouraged to attend.

Pre-Jordan Program Registration

We routinely schedule Baptisms on the 3rd Sunday of every month, absent Advent and Lent and holy day or feast days. We also try to include these days in the rotation:

  • The Second Sunday in January, Feast of the Baptism of our Lord,
  • The Great Vigil of Easter,
  • The Sunday before our annual InGathering in September.

We are thrilled that you are interested in welcoming your candidate into the one holy Catholic and Apostolic Church. Please click here to request a Baptism date and then once you have your date confirmed, please come back here to register for the Pre-Jordan Program!

These gatherings are held in the Sanctuary on the first Sunday of each month at 12:30pm and must be completed no later than the month before your requested baptismal date. Baptisms are held on the Third Sunday of the month except in Advent and Lent.
