 Baptism of young children at
St. Vincent de Paul Parish
We celebrate baptisms of young children (0-6 years) five times each year at one of our weekend Masses. Our next celebration of baptisms is on the weekend of February 5/6. Parents/guardians are asked to participate in Baptism Preparation Classes to update their understanding of baptism, the important responsibilities of Christian parenting, and to learn more about the many ways our parish supports families. Upcoming classes are on Sunday, January 23, 30 & February 13 (post-baptism), 6:30-8:00 pm in the Willenborg Parish Center Living Room. To schedule an initial interview and reserve a date for your child's baptism, or for more information, please contact Deacon Juan Lezcano, OFS at or through the parish office at 253-839-2320.

Commonly Asked Questions
Are there any requirements in order to have my child baptized at St. Vincent? One or both Parents/Guardians are required to be a baptized Catholic and a registered parishioner.
Who can be a godparent? Church law requires that there must be at least one qualified godparent for the child baptized. Godparents need to be active, practicing and confirmed Catholics at least 16 years in age. Godparents need to submit written proof of registration from their parish.
Can a non-Catholic be a godparent? No, only a Catholic can be a godparent because they are asked to promise to help support raising the child in the Catholic faith.
What if the godparents can't come to the actual celebration? You can have a proxy stand in for the godparent(s) if they live in another area, state or, are otherwise unavailable.
Can I schedule a private baptism? No, unless there is an exceptional circumstance. Baptism celebrates the initiation of the child into the parish community and it is very important that the community is present at the time of the celebration.

It is a great time to be Catholic. Our Holy Father, Pope Francis want to hear from every Catholic in the world. He wants to know how the Church is alive in your life and how the Holy Spirit is working in your life. The fancy word he is using for this is Synod. We need your help with two things.
1.      We need people to lead these sessions and people to take notes.
2.      We need you to come to a session and tell us how the Church and the Holy Spirit are a part or not of your life.
To sign up to help our share please let Katie in the office know.
“Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love.”
