“Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them
in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.”
It is with great joy that we welcome your child into the life of Christ and our Church through baptism! The Sacrament of Baptism is such a great gift, not only for the newly baptized, but also for their entire family and the parish community. In this sacrament, the Christian community promises to walk beside you in nurturing the faith of your child.
If you have not yet scheduled the baptism date for your child, please call the parish secretary at (518) 462-1336 to make those arrangements before signing up for a class.
If this is your first time bringing a child forward for baptism, please register for and attend one of our baptism preparation classes as listed below. If you have already had a child baptized and attended a baptism preparation class in the past, there is no need to attend this class, unless you would like to.
All baptism preparation classes are held at St. Pius X Church, 23 Crumitie Road, Loudonville, NY, 12211 at 6:30 p.m. in the Gathering Area (Chapel Entrance) and run for approximately 1½ hour. During the class, parents will learn about the sacrament of baptism, receive a summary of what will happen during the baptism ceremony, tour the church, and have ample opportunity to ask questions. In an enjoyable and relaxed setting, the classes are a great way to meet other young parents and if you are new to us, to become familiar with our church.
Parents are encouraged to bring their child to be baptized to the preparation class. Godparents are also welcome to come.
Please provide the following information. Once you complete this form electronically, we will email you confirming the date you have chosen.
