The customary age for baptism for Catholics is while the child is still very young. The parents and godparents take on the responsibility to continue the training of the infant throughout his or her formative years. This year, SS. Cosmas and Damian would like to begin a new ministry designed specifically for the children 7 to 11 years old who want to be baptized. We call it, “Children’s Journey.” Fr. Michael and his team will lead the preparation sessions.
Sessions will be on Wednesday evenings at 6:00 PM. Sessions will be held in classroom 112a and online at Fr. Michael’s Conference Room.
Parents are encouraged to participate with their children. There is no cost involved. Those who complete the preparation will receive the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and First Holy Communion at the Easter Vigil this coming year. Please register with the parish office to join the Children’s Journey by calling Darryl at 330-425-8141. Students are not required to attend Faith Formation the year they are on the Children’s Journey. They can rejoin their classmates the following academic year.
This program will not be made available every year, so please take advantage of it this year! We look forward to helping your family come to know and love Jesus in a deeper, more communal way.
