Baptisms are typically scheduled for the last Sunday of the month. Please remember that preparation courses must be taken in advance.

To schedule your preparation courses and a Baptism, please contact the parish office at 313-383-8514.


In Baptism, we are asked to walk by the light of Christ and to trust in his wisdom. We are invited to submit our hearts to Christ with ever deeper love.

At that moment, God’s saving grace, His very presence, enters into the human soul. The essential rite of baptism is very simple. The person celebrating the sacrament (usually a priest) says ‘I baptize you in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit’ while pouring water over the head of the person receiving the sacrament or dipping the person in water.
