Preparation & Celebration
Infant Baptism at Holy Trinity Parish will involve a three-step process:
Step 1: Register
Call your parish to register for classes:
Holy Trinity 810-985-9069
St. Mary’s 810-982-7906
Requirements for Godparents
A Godparent’s role is not an honor, it is a responsibility. If something happens that parents cannot raise their children in the Catholic faith, then it is up to the Godparents to promise (at the child’s Baptism) to do everything in their power to fulfill this obligation.
- Must be fully initiated in the Catholic faith
- Must be at least 16 years of age
- Must be in good standing with the church
- Provide a Baptism certificate
- (Only one Godparent needs to be Catholic)
Step 2: Preparation Through Two Sessions
Attending two preparation sessions is only required for your first child’s Baptism.
The preparation process will consist of two parts and parents (and godparents if they would like)
may take them in any order that is convenient for them.
All Sessions will be held at St. Stephen School
From 9:00am – 10:30am
325 32nd Street
Port Huron, MI 48060
Session 2: Bringing your child up Catholic
What does it mean to be a disciple?
How does family faith develop?

Step 3: Celebration of the Sacrament of Baptism
After classes are complete, call your parish to set up your child’s Baptism date.
