The one who is baptized is immersed into the death of Christ and rises with him as a ‘new creature’ (2 Corinthians 5:17). Baptism takes away original sin, all personal sins, and all punishment due to sin. It makes the baptized person a participant in the divine life of the Trinity through sanctifying grace, the grace of justification which incorporates one into Christ and into his Church. It gives one a share in the priesthood of Christ and provides the basis for communion with all Christians. It bestows the theological virtues and the gifts of the Holy Spirit. A baptized person belongs forever to Christ. He is marked with the indelible seal of Christ (character).

How do I schedule a Baptism?

For children under age 7

Queen of Peace is excited to celebrate your child’s baptism.  Below you can find out how to get the process started in two easy steps. 

  1. Parents must first submit the following documents to the Queen of Peace Receptionist at least one month prior to the Baptism: 
    1. The Baptism Registration Form
    2. The Birth Certificate of the child to be baptized
    3. For Godparents (a man and/or a woman, fully initiated Catholic in good standing with the Church):
      1. If married, a copy of their Marriage Certificate and copy of their Confirmation Certificate
      2. If single, a copy of their Confirmation Certificate
      3. A signed and authorized Godparent Profession of Faith Form (one per Godparent)
      4. A signed Church Affiliation Form, if Godparents are not registered members of Queen of Peace Catholic Church
  2. Parents and Godparents must register (at the Parish front desk) and attend a two-part Preparation Class, generally held on the 1st and 2nd Saturdays of each month at 5:30 PM in the St. Lawrence Room. Both parts of this class are obligatory for parents and godparents who have not attended a Baptism Preparation Class within the last year.

 Godparents must meet the following requirements:

  • Be at least 16 years of age
  • Have received all three Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation)
  • If married, be married according to the laws of the Catholic Church
  • Participate regularly at Sunday Mass and receive Holy Communion
  • Believe and live out all that the Catholic Church professes and teaches
  • Assume responsibility to be a good Christian role model by prayer and example
  • Have attended the necessary preparation class(es).

Baptisms in English are celebrated at 3:30 pm and in Spanish at 8:45 in the Gathering Space on the 3rd and 4th Sundays of each month.  There will be no Baptisms during Lent. 
Parents and Godparents who intend to be part of a Baptism at Queen of Peace Catholic Church are strongly encouraged to register as Parishioners.
