The sacrament of Baptism for infants and children under the age of 7 is offered on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Sundays of each month at 1:45 p.m. Beginning in January, 2016 the schedule for baptisms will change. Baptisms will take place on the 2nd weekend of each month (except during Lent and Advent) at either the 4:00 pm Mass on Saturday or the 12:15 Mass on Sunday. Also, the 4th Sunday of each month at 1:45 pm will accommodate any additional baptisms.

A preparation class is required if you have not taken one within the past 5 years or taken a class at St. Anastasia. The class is offered on the 2nd Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m. and may be completed prior to the birth of your child.
