Sacraments

Sacrament of Baptism

Baptism classes for first time parents are held on an as needed basis.  Please contact Sr. Josephine to schedule your class date at 401-849-8702.

Godparents are encouraged to attend the class with the parents since they will serve as sponsors at the Baptism and are to be helpers to the parents in the education of the child in the Catholic faith.  Only Confirmed Catholics who are registered in their parish, practice their faith, are in good standing with the Church and are at least sixteen (16) years of age may be godparents.  All godparents must complete our Baptism Sponsor Form and have it signed by their parish priest and affixed with the parish seal.  These forms should be returned to St. Augustin’s Parish Office well before the Baptism date.

When the forms have been returned and the class requirement completed, the date and time of the Baptism will be confirmed.  Baptisms are normally celebrated on the first weekend of each month (except during Lent) during the 9:30 PM Mass on Saturday.   The donation is $25.00.  Please make the check payable to St. Mary’s Church.  This will be used to support the Baptism and Religious Education Programs of the parish.  Also, a stipend for Fr. Kris in the amount of your choosing, is customary.
