For Catholics, the Sacrament of Baptism is the first step in a lifelong journey of commitment and discipleship. Whether we are baptized as infants or adults, baptism is the Church’s way of celebrating and enacting the embrace of God.

St. Matthew offers the Sacrament of Baptism every Sunday at 2 pm except the fifth Sunday of the month. Parents are required to attend a baptism preparation class, which is offered on select Sundays from 9 to 10:30 am in the New Life Center. Please contact Pat McGuire at 704-543-7677 x 1026 with questions or to schedule baptism or class attendance.
