Baptism

For Catholics, the Sacrament of Baptism is the first step in a lifelong journey of commitment and discipleship. At Baptism we receive and celebrate God’s free gift of grace and salvation through Jesus Christ. In Baptism we are reminded that God has chosen us to live and grow with God’s people. As the first Sacrament of Initiation, Baptism is also the sign of a lifelong relationship with God and with the Church.

For children under 7 years old, parents complete a pre-baptism class with the Baptism, Pre-School, and Elementary Faith Formation Coordinator, Jessica Sosa, prior to the child’s baptism. Classes are currently offered virtually on the first Monday of each month from 7:00-8:30 p.m. Complete the intake form below to schedule this class.

Contact Jessica Sosa at jessica.sosa@risensavior.org or call (952) 679-1523 with questions regarding baptisms.

When parents present their child for baptism, they are asking the Church to receive the child as part of the family of Jesus Christ.  They are also making a commitment to their child to help him or her become part of this community of faith.  At baptism parents are told to “make it their constant care to bring up their child in the practice of the faith.”

Baptism Preparation & Celebration at Risen Savior

To begin the process, fill out the online form below.  We will work with your family to prepare you for the celebration, hopefully meeting you where you are on your journey of faith. You must be a registered member of Risen Savior parish to have your child baptized at Risen Savior. Jessica Sosa will assist you in completing this process if you are not yet registered.

N.B. ALL paperwork, including submitting a copy of the child’s birth certificate, providing the names of the Godparents, etc., MUST be completed two weeks before the scheduled date of the Baptism.  Failure to comply with this process will automatically result in delaying the celebration of Baptism until a future date.
