Sacrament of Baptism


Baptisms are typically scheduled twice a month.  A Baptism Class is required-please contact the parish office (734)285-9840 ext 100 for class and baptism dates.

It is expected that parents are registered and in good standing with the parish for at least three months prior to scheduling a baptism.  
One of the parents must be baptized and confirmed Catholic. One of the godparents  must be baptized, and confirmed Catholic, registered and attending a Catholic Church.

Please note beginning January 1, 2020:

Parents must submit a copy of their child’s birth certificate. This will be on file for one year, then shredded.

Baptisms take place at St. Joseph Catholic Church, 344 Elm Street, Wyandotte, Michigan after the 11:30 am Mass… or upon request, at St. Patrick Church, 135 Superior Blvd., Wyandotte during the 9:30 am Mass.

Please contact the Parish Office one month before the preferred Baptism date at 734-285-9840, ext. 100.

Baptism: The Door of the Church

The Sacrament of Baptism is often called “The door of the Church,” because it is the first of the seven sacraments not only in time (since most Catholics receive it as infants) but in priority, since the reception of the other sacraments depends on it. It is the first of the three Sacraments of Initiation, the other two being the Sacrament of Confirmation and the Sacrament of Holy Communion. Once baptized, a person becomes a member of the Church.
