Our pre-baptismal catechesis program involves both parents and godparents and is set within the context of a video entitled “Your Baby’s Baptism,” produced by Liguori Publications. Team members in the parish direct the program and answer questions that may arise from view the video. Besides the instructional dimension, the program offers a welcoming and hospitable atmosphere to the families in attendance. Classes are held once a month, on a Sunday at 1:30 p.m. in the lower church. Contact the rectory at 508-528-0020 for dates and to sign up for a class.
