Baptism: Baptism is the basis for the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit and the door which gives access to all the other sacraments.
Infant Baptism: This sacrament is celebrated by appointment, usually following the 10:30 A.M. Sunday Mass. Parents bringing their first child to be baptized, are asked to attend a pre-baptismal instructional class. This class is held on the second Monday of each month at 6:30 P.M. in the faculty room of St. Timothy Middle School. This time of preparation gives an overview of the meaning of the sacrament and its symbols and lasts approximately one hour. Parents who have already attended this formation need not do it again for children to follow. To schedule a Baptism call the Rectory at 860-233-5131.
Adult Baptism: In the case of an adult wishing to be baptized, the Parish of St. Timothy offers the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. This process consists of weekly sessions with the goal of introducing the adult to the basics of the Catholic faith. Pat Piano, Pastoral Associate facilitates the process with a team of volunteers who offer support and encouragement as they share their stories of living the Catholic faith. To learn more about this process, call Pat Piano at the rectory: 860-232-8594.
