Baptism

baptism

God has blessed your family with a beautiful gift, the birth of a child.

Our Saint Joseph Parish Community celebrates with you at this joyous time! We are happy that you intend to share the gift of faith with your child and hope to help you plan and prepare for the baptism in the best possible way.

Sacrament of Baptism
Registered parishioners wishing to have their child baptized should call the Parish Office 973.697.6100 and speak with Justine Smith. At that time information on Baptism Prep classes and baptism dates will be discussed.
Baptisms are usually celebrated on the first and third Sunday of each month.

Baptism Prep classes are scheduled at the time the baptism date is reserved.

Qualifications for Godparents
Godparents must be catholic, have received the Sacraments of Baptism, Holy Eucharist and Confirmation and attend Mass regularly. These requirements are the universal law of the Church and are not determined by the individual parish. If the person you choose as godparent fulfills these requirements, they are asked to furnish a letter from their Parish stating that they are indeed eligible to be a godparent.
