We welcome our youngest members into the Christian faith and the St. Joan of Arc community on the first and third Sundays of each month in the Church after Sunday services.
Registered parishioners wishing to have their child baptized at SJA are required to participate in a 90-minute Baptism preparation class which typically takes place during the second week of the month. In addition to instruction, the parish provides a Baptismal certificate, candle and hand–embroidered stole to those receiving the sacrament.
Older children and adults wishing to be baptized are encouraged to participate in the Christian Initiation of Children (CIC) or Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) programs which culminate with Baptism during the Easter season.
For more information or to register your child for Baptism, contact JP Fitzgibbons,
jfitzgibbons [at] stjoan.com or 612.823.8205.
Volunteer through our Shared Ministry Form to be a baptism class teacher or to assist in sewing and embroidering baptism gowns or stoles.
