To learn more about the Sacrament of Baptism, visit theUSCCB website.
Your first step to have your child Baptized is to contact Fr. Joe by email or by calling 410-433-2300, ext. 102. He will arrange a time to meet with you to discuss details of the Baptism, including the date and time, Godparents, and why you want to have your child Baptized. Baptisms are scheduled privately, or can take place during a Weekend Mass. Baptisms are not usually scheduled during Advent or Lent. Of course we welcome Deacons and Priests from other Parishes to Celebrate Baptisms at St. Matthew. If you wish to have your Baptism at St. Matthew and are bringing a Deacon or Priest from another Parish to Celebrate the Sacrament, please have this information available and call our office so we can schedule the Baptism.
The following forms are available to download and complete in advance of your meeting with Fr. Joe.
