Baptisms 4/23/2018

Infant Baptism

Infant baptisms are normally celebrated on the second and fourth Sundays of the month at 1:15pm or on the first Sunday of the month during Mass. There is a preparation session for first time parents and for parents who have never before attended a preparation session.

In 2019 our Preparation Sessions will be held on Jan 14, March 11, May 6, June 17, July 29, Sept 9, Nov 11. All sessions are on Monday evenings from 7:00 to 8:15pm in the Rectory. 

Apply for an infant baptism by submitting the form available here. We urge you to submit the form at least six weeks prior to the requested baptism date.

Godparents are strongly encouraged to attend the preparation session too. Please call the rectory (312-644-0036) to register


Adult Baptism


The Baptism of adults follows upon the completion of the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). The RCIA meets at Assumption on Sunday mornings from September until May. It is for adults who have never been baptized, were baptized in another Christian religion and now wish to explore becoming Catholic, and for those who were baptized Catholic but did not attend Catholic School or attend Religion Classes. There is a special Adult Confirmation Program offered by the Archdiocese of Chicago for those who were raised Catholic but were never confirmed. For more information, call Fr. Joe Chamblain, O.S.M. (312) 644-0036 ext. 11
