Baptism Preparation Classes
To inquire about Baptism, call at 303-428-3594 ext. 14 and ask for Catalina or e-mail at REassistant@htcatholic.org
Parents and Godparents would need to attend two preparatory sessions of approximately 1hour and 45 minutes each. Unfortunately, there is no babysitting available; therefore, you will have to find a babysitter.
Baptisms take place after the 5:00 pm Mass on specific Saturdays.
