What is Baptism?

Baptism is the sacrament of rebirth into life in Jesus. Through it comes the forgiveness of sins, adoption into God's family, new life in Christ, and membership into His body, the Church.

The Baptism of Children at Our Lady of Grace

Here are the steps to having your child celebrate the Sacrament of Baptism at Our Lady of Grace:

  1. Become a member of our Parish community. Click here or consult the bulletin for our next New Parishioner Orientation.

  2. Is this your first child to be baptized? Are you a new parishioner? Haven’t attended a class in the last 5 years? Attend a Baptism Preparation Class! As of November 2018, we will host classes every other month on the third Tuesday. Starting July 2018, we will be hosting classes every other month on the fourth Tuesday. We highly recommend you attend a class while still pregnant, so your child can be baptized as soon as possible.

  3. Attended the class within the last 5 years? You are not required to attend the Baptism Class again.

  4. Fill out our Baptism Registration Form to register for a Baptism Class and/or begin the process of reserving a date for your child’s Baptism. We host baptisms on the first and third Sunday each month after the 11:30 AM Mass.

  5. Once we receive your registration, you will be asked to provide a copy of your child’s birth certificate. You can either mail a photo copy to the office (attn. Annelise Curran, 5071 Eden Ave, Edina, MN 55436) or email a picture to Annelise Curran at annelisecurran@olgparish.org.

  6. If you have any questions, please contact Annelise Curran at annelisecurran@olgparish.org or in the Parish Office (x9048).

If you would like to have an older child (3 years old and up) Baptized, please contact Annelise Curran at annelisecurran@olgparish.org or in the Parish Office (x9048).
