“Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to the life in the Spirit and the door which gives access to the other sacraments.” – Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1213

Parents are the principal and first educators of their children. To assist parents in preparing for their child’s Baptism, the parish provides classes the second Saturday of every month at 10:00 a.m. in the Browning Center. Please call Pam Kastner at or (845) 544-3434 to register.

Persons over the age of 7 who have never been baptized, or baptized in another faith tradition are asked to call the Parish Office, ext. #240 and inquire about the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults.
