The purpose of this class is to give parents a chance to realize the commitment needed from them for the Rite of Baptism, the obligation they have to their child, and to ensure that they are prepared to present their child for the Sacrament of Baptism. Attendance at this one-time class is required and must be taken prior to the Baptism date. If you have taken a class for a child you have had previously Baptized, you do not need to retake this unless it has been over 5 years. The class must be taken prior to the Baptism. Godparents are encouraged to attend with the parents.
Classes are set up on an individual basis to fit both your schedule and that of our Baptism Coordinator. Call the Parish Office at (262) 251-5910, ext. 10, to sign up for a date for your child's Baptism and to register for a class if needed. Baptisms are held at 12 pm on the 2nd Sunday of each month, and at all Masses on the 3rd weekend of each month.

The sacrament of Reconciliation also known as Penance and Confession, is a sacrament in which a priest, as the agent of God, forgives sins, when the sinner is heartily sorry for them, sincerely confesses them, and is willing to make satisfaction for them.
Reconciliation is available Saturdays in the church at 3:30 pm or anytime by appointment.
