Baptisms are celebrated at St. Julia Church once a month at 1:00pm or may be celebrated at St Joseph or St Julia churches during a Sunday Mass with previous coordination. An instruction (catechesis) program is offered to parents of a first Baptism prior to the scheduled Baptism. Please arrange the Baptism at least a month in advance where possible.
We realize that for this important sacrament, you may have friends and/or relatives traveling from a distance. In cases with extenuating circumstances we will coordinate individually regarding date/time if needed. Please secure the date and time of Baptism with the parish before booking flights or reserving space for receptions. We are not able to accommodate all requests, especially not with short notice.
You may download a Baptism Request Form in Word or PDF format. Please fill it out with the information requested and circle the Baptismal date you are requesting. Please mail or drop it off at the Parish Office. You may also email the completed Word form or scanned PDF to the Parish Office. Once the form has been received you will be contacted to confirm the Baptism date and discuss any needed preparation. Always feel free to contact the Parish Office at (781) 899-2611 for information.
