SS. John & Bernard Parish

To grow as a Catholic community, united by the Holy Spirit, living our faith in Jesus Christ and sharing God's truth and love with all people

Arrange with the Pastor for the celebration of Baptisms at either St. John's or St. Bernard's.

Baptisms can be scheduled by appointment.

Parents should contact the rectory as soon as practical after the Birth of a Child. If it is the families first child, there is a recommended Baptism Preparation Class. Call the rectory for an appointment.

Older students who have not received the sacraments may contact their Pastor or the Religious Education Office for guidance and information on programs available to them.


One of the Seven Sacraments of the Christian Church; frequently called the "first sacrament", the "door of the sacraments", and the "door of the Church".  For Catholics, the Sacrament of Baptism is the first step in a lifelong journey of commitment and discipleship. Whether we are baptized as infants or adults, Baptism is the Church's way of celebrating and enacting the embrace of God.
