Baptism Form
Baptismal Guidelines
Godparent Certificate
Baptism is the first sacrament we receiving as we become Catholic. Upon receiving two other sacraments, Eucharist and Confirmation, we become fully initiated into the Roman Catholic Church. We look forward to baptizing your baby! Specific requirements MUST be met before we can baptize. Parents must be registered parishioners of Saint Andrew for at LEAST six months prior to the anticipated date of baptism. Parents must be demonstrating they are attending Mass at Saint Andrew by making regular contributions (via envelopes or electronic giving). Parents and god parents must complete a sacrament preparation class for baptism. We usually celebrate baptisms on Sunday afternoon. Questions about baptism? Call Michele Salcedo (817)-927-5383

Preparation for children 7 and older
Children ages 7 years and older, enroll in RCIA adapted for children and youth which brings them into a faith formation process in preparation for their celebrating the Sacraments of Initiation. (Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation.) Contact Deacon Kevin Bagley.
