Fr. Bill's Corner
A MESSAGE FROM FR. BILL
“Baptism is the door of the spiritual life and the gateway to the sacraments.”
- St. THOMAS AQUINAS,
Parishioners requesting to have their children baptized are asked to contact the rectory office two months prior to date of baptism. Parents are required to participate in a Baptismal Preparation Session held on the first Sunday of the month following the 10:00 AM Mass in the Parish Conference Room for a screening and discussion of “REBORN” on FORMED.ORG (ZPTW8G). Godparents are invited but not required to attend this session.
Baptisms will be celebrated on the second weekend of the month at the 4PM and 10AM Masses, providing there are no conflicts, or at 11:15AM Sunday morning. Non-parishioners are required to obtain, from their pastor, written permission to have their child baptized at Our Mother of Sorrows. Parishioners who have joined the parish within the past six months are asked to give three months’ notice before having their children baptized. Godparents, who are not parishioners of Our Mother of Sorrows, are required to obtain a letter from their pastor stating that they participate in the sacramental life in their own parish.
Fr. William G. Coffas
