The Sacrament of Baptism for infants and young children normally occurs on the second Sunday of the month. (For information about the Sacrament of Baptism for older children, teens, and adults, please go to our RCIA page.)

Beginning in March 2021, the Sacrament of Baptism for young children will take place following the 1:00 pm Mass starting at about 2:45 pm.

The Diocese of Lansing requires parents to attend a Baptismal Catechesis class before the Baptism. (You only have to attend the class once.) Classes take place once a quarter. The next class is scheduled for Monday, May 3, 2021, at 7:30 pm. You do not need to wait to have your baby before attending the class. Before attending the class, please read the section on Baptism in the Catechism of the Catholic Church, paragraphs 1213 to 1284.

To schedule your child’s Baptism and/or register for Baptismal Catechesis, please contact Sharon Messiter ( or 734-929-0975).
