Baptism

For all of us, our journey of faith  begins with the Sacrament of Baptism.  Baptism forms the basis of the Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit, and the door which gives access to the other Sacraments. Presenting a child for Baptism is a serious obligation and requires a faith commitment on the part of the parents and godparents.  This commitment is exemplified by being practicing, active Catholics for at least six (6) months at St. Mary, Mother of Mercy parish. 

 If you have just moved to the Parish, a letter from your previous pastor verifying the same is acceptable.  Attendance at a Baptismal Preparation session is required. Please contact Father Richard Rasch to discuss and schedule.  Fr. Rasch can be contacted at richardsrasch@gmail.com Tel: 216-701-0606.
