This page is about the process for scheduling the Sacrament of Baptism at Christ the King for infants and young children. For information about the Sacrament of Baptism for older children, teens, and adults, please go to our RCIA page.
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. You do not need to wait to have your baby before attending the class.
To register for Baptismal Catechesis, please contact Peter Vanicelli (firstname.lastname@example.org or 734-929-0984) and complete the Baptismal Catechesis Registration Form by clicking on the button below. Before attending the class, please read the section on Baptism in the Catechism of the Catholic Church, paragraphs 1213 to 1284.
Infant/Young Child Baptism
The Sacrament of Baptism for infants and young children is usually scheduled on the second Sunday of the month (except in May) at 12:45 pm. To schedule your child’s Baptism, please contact Peter Vanicelli (email@example.com or 734-929-0984) and complete the Infant Baptism Registration Form by clicking on the button below.
Please note: We at Christ the King will always do our best to accommodate outside clergy who are being asked to perform a Baptism, but please check with Peter Vanicelli before you plan on a particular date/time to ensure the church is available. Baptisms performed by Christ the King deacons are scheduled for the second Sunday of each month, excluding May.
In addition to the Infant Baptism Registration Form, any of your child’s godparents who are not registered members of Christ the King must complete a Godparent Eligibility Form. They must return this form to the parish at least three weeks before the scheduled Baptism. To access that form, please click on the button below.
