Baptism for infants or children under the age of seven
usually takes place on the fourth Sunday of the month at 12:00 noon.
On some occasions, baptisms are held during the 9:00am or 11:00am masses.
Private baptisms may be arranged under certain circumstances.

In order to properly prepare your family for your child's baptism,
parents and godparents are required to take one pre-baptism class,
held on the first Thursday of the month, at the Parish Center.
At least one godparent must be a practicing Catholic.
If you wish to have your baby or young child baptized at St. Bede,
please contact Moira Arjani at firstname.lastname@example.org or 818-949-4323
