Infant Baptism

Congratulations on the birth of your child!

You give your children many things - food, shelter, clothing, education, a loving home, and a caring family. But, it all begins with the gift of faith. Through Baptism, your child will belong to Christ forever. To begin the process at St. Bernard of Clairvaux, please follow these steps:

  1. Register for Baptism Class: Please call the Parish Office at 480-661-9843 or e-mail Nancy Boettcher at to register for the class date you wish to attend – class dates are in the Infant Baptism Information Packet. Classes may be taken at another parish, but a certificate of completion is necessary for paperwork.
  2. Download the Infant Baptism Information Packet: You can find a link for the packet under Documents. Please read thoroughly and return to Nancy ASAP.
  3. Reserve a Date for the Baptism: As soon as you have completed your registration for Baptism and notified Nancy of the class that you would like to attend, you may reserve a baptismal date. Baptismal dates are also in the packet.
