To Contact Us:

At this time, our baptismal program is an on-line program.  Registration is required by contacting Shawn by e-mail  - sdenning@stscholasticaparish.org or phone at 630.985.2351x130. If this is your first child, you MUST participate in the on-line program before requesting a date for your baby’s baptism. If you have attended a class within the last 4 years, you need not re-attend. If you attended the class at St. Scholastica, simply call Shawn to schedule your baby’s baptism and provide the date you attended.  If you attended at another parish, you will be asked to provide a letter of verification.  Your family should be registered with the parish in order to baptize a child here.

 

GODPARENTS:  A person may only have one or two godparents (also called sponsors); if two are chosen, they must be one male and one female.

In order for someone to be eligible as a godparent they must be chosen by the parents, have the ability and the intention to fulfill the role, be at least 16 years of age, and be a confirmed Roman Catholic, who has already received the Most Holy Eucharist, is leading a life in harmony with the Catholic Faith (including Marriage), and will be a good role model for the one being baptized, and be neither the father nor the mother of the child.

A baptized person who belongs to another Christian community may be admitted only as a “Christian witness” (not a godparent) provided that there is at least one Roman Catholic godparent who fulfills the above criteria.  A non-baptized person cannot be a witness (Code of Canon Law,cc.872-874: Catechism of the Catholic Church 1255).

 

Generally, we baptize at St. Scholastica three out of four Sundays of the month. Baptisms take place at a 2 pm ceremony. No baptisms take place during Lent. We limit the number of children baptized to 5 families at one ceremony.  We follow all CDC and diocesan Covid protocol. Please check with Shawn to make certain the date you want is available before making plans with your family. The fee for baptism is $50 per child.
