CCC 1213: 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.

Congratulations on the birth of your child! Baptisms are beautiful celebrations at St. Frances Cabrini. Newly baptized Christians are cleansed from sin, while being welcomed into the family of God as a new creation. The entire community welcomes these special celebrations, which are administered either inside or outside of mass.

At St. Frances Cabrini we schedule up to two baptisms at masses on the 1st and 2nd weekends of the month and communal baptisms are scheduled outside of mass on the 3rd Sunday of the month at 12:30 p.m.

Baptism Classes

We ask that both parents attend a Baptism Preparation class. These classes are scheduled about once a month at 12:30 p.m. in the church and last about an hour. We ask that you call 303-953-7766 to register for a class.

You do not need to take a class if you have completed a prep class within the last two years.

Godparent Information

Godparents must fill out the Godparent Information Form. This form must be signed and sealed by the Godparent’s parish and returned to St. Frances Cabrini at least one week prior to the baptism. The Catholic Church has clear guidelines about the requirements of Godparents. Godparents are expected to attend a Baptism Preparation Class either at St. Frances Cabrini or another parish.
