Welcome to the St. Barnabas Parish Baptism Program. Please refer to the following information regarding your upcoming Baptism orientation class.
Parents need to attend one orientation class in a Diocese of Cleveland parish prior to the actual Baptism of their child. It is highly encouraged that both parents attend the class early on in one's pregancy to address any questions that may arise. If either parent has attended a class in the last five years, you do not have to repeat the class. These sessions are scheduled four times throughout the year at St. Barnabas Church for your convenience.
Parents must be registered members of a Catholic Parish to register for one of the Baptism orientation sessions. If you are not registered in a parish, we ask you to register as soon as possible.
Those who have attended an orientation session and wish to have their child baptized at St. Barnabas Parish should see or call any of the priests at 330-467-7959 to arrange a date for Baptism. It is our hope that this time of preparation for the celebration of Baptism is a rewarding time for you. Please feel free to contact the Parish Office with questions at any time, 330-467-7959.
