Baptisms are done at Our Lady of the Snow on the second Saturday and the fourth Sunday of each month (April - October) and on the second Saturday only (November - March) at 1PM in the Mother Church.
To make arrangements to have your child baptized here, call the rectory at (631) 363-6385 ext. 110. We can do most of the paperwork over the phone. We will, however, need a copy of your child's birth certificate.
If this is your first child, you (the parents) will have to attend a baptismal preparation class held the first Tuesday of each month at 7:30PM in the Mother Church.
The church requires that your child have at least one Catholic Godparent who has been baptized, confirmed, made first communion, is at least 16 years of age, and, if married, is validly married in the Catholic church. A second person may be a baptized non-Catholic Christian and may act as a Christian witness. Non-baptized persons cannot act as a Godparent or Christian witness.
Please provide us with a Testimony of Sponsor Form signed by the Catholic Godparents' parish indicating that he/she meets all the above requirements. **Please note: This form must be signed by the parish where the Godparent currently attends Mass on Sundays**
We are delighted to be part of this special day in the life of your child, but we need your complete cooperation in getting us the necessary paperwork (in all cases) and in attending the baptismal preparation class (if this is your first child). Don't leave any of this until the last minute!
