Hi everyone! My name is Heidi and I'm 28 years old and married to my highschool sweetheart , Dan for almost 5 years. We were married in a catholic mission in CA. We moved to AZ in October of 2005 and then we became pregnant with our first son Daniel. He was born on August 1, 2006. When we moved to our small town a few neighbors introduced us to a Christian church and we have been going there for a year or so now. Lately, we feel like we haven't gotten anything out of it (spritual wise) like we did before so we both returned to our roots. We found a Catholic church here that we have been happy with. Now, we need to get our son baptized. Not having him baptized has really been nagging at us.

Do we just contact the parish for classes? Are there classes? Any help and advice would be great. THanks so much and I look forward to getting to know you all. Have a wonderful day!

Hi there, and welcome!

I am Julia, mom to Natasha born in Sept '06. Looking forward to getting to know you!

I know some parishes have baptism classes you have to attend 2-3 times, and others have just 1 short class to attend. In our parish, it was just 1 class with the parish deacon where he talked about the meaning of baptism, showed us a baptismal video, and answered any questions. Just contact the parish you're attending and ask about their specifications and I am sure they'd be happy to answer your questions.

See you around!

Welcome Heidi!! I'm Christine, mommy to Isaac (2 years) and Clare (10 months).
I'm happy to hear that you've decided to return to the Church. I will pray for your family that
the Holy Spirit continue to work through your family.

As far as baptism classes, we also had to attend 1 short class. Definitely check with your
Parish to be sure. God Bless you and Welcome to the board!!
Happy Posting!!

--Christine

We live in Sahuarita which is just south of Tucson. We were just through Yuma 2 weeks ago. We were coming back from CA.

HI there. I am Becky. I have been absent from JM for a while. I know you will like this board. I married my highschool sweetheart too.....but that was 18 yrs ago.

Ditto what they both said about Baptism classes. And welcome.
