Baptism

The Sacrament of Baptism for infants and young children is usually scheduled on the second Sunday of the month at 12:45 pm. (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. The next class is tentatively scheduled for Monday, Feb. 7, pending interest from parents seeking Baptism for their children. 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 Peter Vanicelli (pvanicelli@ctkcc.net or 734-929-0984). Please also complete the Infant Baptism Registration Form by clicking on the button below.

Any of your child’s godparents who are not registered members of Christ the King must complete a Godparent Eligibility Form and return it to the parish three weeks before the scheduled Baptism. To access that form, please click on the button below.
