Infant Baptism at St Michael's in Livermore, CA

We are overjoyed by your interest in joining your child to God's family through the Sacrament of Baptism! 

The process for baptizing your child (under age 7) takes two months, including meeting with the pastor and attending one class.  Godparents must attend the class.  Mothers who are six months pregnant are encouraged to begin the process.

The First Step

Begin the Baptism process by downloading the Baptism Packet below, in English or Spanish:

Baptism Packet in English    Bautismo Español 

Communal Baptism: Suggested donation $75

Private Baptism: Suggested donation $150

At least one godparent MUST be Catholic and have received Baptism, First Communion, and Confirmation. Godparents who are married must have been married in the Church. Godparents must attend the baptism class (or a class at another parish).

The Next Steps

Bring your completed Baptism packet and documents to the church office.  You will make an appointment to meet with a priest for an interview about the Sacrament of Baptism and to sign up for a Baptism class.
