Baptism
Infant Baptisms take place on the second and fourth Sunday of the month at 12:00 PM or at Mass upon request. Parents are required to be registered and active members of our parish. Parents are required to attend our Baptismal Preparation Program. Attendance at class before the birth of the child is allowed. Parents are asked to choose a godfather and a godmother who will take the role seriously and be a good role model for the child. Church law sets minimum requirements for godparents: at least 16 years old, already confirmed and a practicing Catholic. Non-registered members who request a Baptism for their child are required to attend a Baptismal Preparation Class at their own parish and present a letter from their Pastor giving Our Lady of the Brook permission to baptize their child. Call the rectory to make arrangements.

For other times, please call the rectory to make an appointment.
