The Sacrament of Baptism

Baptisms are celebrated communally one Saturday a month at 11 a.m. First time parents are expected to attend a baptismal preparation held on a prior Saturday. For special reasons or in certain circumstances, private baptisms may also be arranged if a priest or deacon is available. Contact: Sister Diane Vallerio, 617-552-6107,
