Sacrament of Baptism Baptisms are held on the last Sunday of each month. Call the parish office at 330-325-7543 to schedule baptisms. Those wishing to have their babies baptized should be practicing Catholics and registered in the parish for at least four months.

One Godparent MUST be a practicing Catholic.
