Baptism

SACRAMENT OF BAPTISM

All registrations for baptism and baptismal preparation are made through the parish office at 217-546-3527. Baptisms are celebrated on Saturday evenings or Sundays after Mass, and may also be celebrated within Mass upon request.

Prior to the celebration of baptism, parents are expected to meet with a member of the clergy at the parish. Parents who have previously participated in baptism preparation are not required to meet with a member of the clergy for preparation. We recommend that parents request this meeting prior to the birth of their child, if possible.

The clergy at Christ the King Parish look forward to assisting you as you seek for your child to be incorporated into God’s family through rebirth by water and the Holy Spirit at their baptism.
