Baptism

Baptism of Small Children
Your decision to have your child baptized is a major step for you as parents, for you have accepted the joy and challenge of raising your child Catholic. As one way of supporting you, we present a Baptism Class for parents. If this is your first child to be baptized, we ask that you register for a class by calling the St. Mary, Portage Parish Center (608-742-6998) for both parishes.

These classes are scheduled at St. Mary, Portage on the third Tuesday of each month at 6:00 pm.

Baptism of Teens and Adults
Older teens and adults seeking Baptism are invited to the RCIA process (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults). RCIA provides a format for discerning God’s call to Catholicism and responding to it with an open heart.
