Congratulations! With great joy we welcome your child as a new member of the mystical Body of Christ. Baptism is a great moment in the life of a family and the life of the parish, but greater yet in the life of the one baptized. It is by this Sacrament that one is admitted into God’s family. The individual becomes a member of “a chosen race, a Baptism Registrationoyal priesthood, a holy nation, and a people God calls his own.”
However, before we can set a date for the Baptism, there are some procedures listed below that need to be observed:
- Your family must register in St. Edward Parish. If you have not yet registered, please stop by the office for a form or call the office to have one sent to you. You can also register online here.
- If you have not attended our Baptismal class, or if it has been longer than two years since you attended a class, you must attend that class. They are held the first Wednesday of the month from 7-8 pm in the church office conference room. PLEASE RSVP TO THE CHURCH OFFICE 615-833-5520
- The Godparent forms must be filled out by the Godparent’s home parish. The completed forms can be returned to the St. Edward church office or turned in at the Baptismal class when you attend.
The Requirements for Baptismal Godparents form will help you in choosing a Godparent or Godparents.
I would like to once again congratulate you and welcome you to this joyful moment in the lives of so many! Thank you for choosing life and for being an example for many.
