Sponsor Affirmation Form
Baptisms are scheduled for the first and third Sunday of each month. Baptisms at St. Mary’s take place at 11:30am, and at Holy Spirit at 12:30pm.
To begin the process, please fill out the information below and we will contact you. Please choose one church when selecting your preferred dates. Also please note, if you are not a parishioner of Annunciation Parish or a resident of Newington, please provide a reason for wanting your child baptized in our parish. If you have no connection to our parish, we strongly encourage you to baptize your child in a Catholic parish near your home and become a member of that parish. First time parents will need to attend one Baptism preparation class. Godparents will need to fill out the Sponsor Affirmation form, available above.
"Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit, and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission: Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water in the word."
