The Sacrament of Baptism is a celebration of new life for our parish when families come to ask to have their child baptized. Baptisms are scheduled to meet the needs of the families. There is an exception as in the season of Lent we all are invited to wait for the new waters of Easter, unless it is an emergency situation. During the season of Easter, baptisms are celebrated more often in conformity with the Easter motif of new life. The Sacrament of Baptism is celebrated the 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month after the 10:30 Mass.
Those wishing to have their child baptized are asked to call the rectory (412)-344-5010) to schedule a date. Each family is encouraged to prepare for the sacrament and new celebration by attending a Baptismal Class offered on the last Monday of the month in the Hrico Room beginning at 7:00PM.
