St. Raymond de Penafort offers our congratulations to you on the birth of your precious child! We know this is a busy time in your life, but we are thrilled that you are planning to have your child receive the sacrament of Baptism. We are here to welcome you and your child into our Faith Community. Our desire is to make your child’s entrance into our Faith Community a rich and rewarding experience.
Currently, baptisms are scheduled on Saturday and Sundays for 1:00 p.m., please call the Office of Liturgy at 847-253-8600 ext.145 to schedule your child’s baptism. Due to the pandemic, the office will be able to provide the specific procedures to be followed for your family’s special day.
Until we can gather again in-person for our baptismal preparation session, the 45-minute video below is a wonderful way to begin your faith journey as a family. We hope that you are able to enter into this process knowing God’s immense love and take time to reflect on the meaning of this important initiation sacrament for their child. Enjoy!
