St. Mary of Gostyn offers baptismal preparation sessions on a monthly basis. If this is your first child, or it has been more than five years since you attended a baptismal preparation session at St. Mary’s or another parish, you will need to participate in a session before you can receive a date for your baby’s baptism.
If you have participated in baptismal preparation within the last five years, you do not have to attend a session. However, please see the important information concerning godparent Sponsor certificates below.
Parents are expected to be registered parishioners. Under certain circumstances, registered parishioners of other parishes would be welcome to have have their child baptized at St. Mary. Please call the parish office (630-969-1063) with your request.
Baptismal preparation sessions are led by lay volunteers and are typically offered on the first Thursday of each month, in the Parish Center. You will also have the option to take the class on-line for a nominal fee. Please call the Parish Center at (630) 969-1063 to secure a spot for an upcoming class.
