According to City wide policy as established by the area pastors in 2015, all candidates for the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation) are to be formed in their home parish. Since the Newman Center falls within the boundaries of St. Mary of the Visitation Parish, formation for those sacraments will be the parish’s responsibility.
Baptism For infant baptism and those up to the age of 7, please contact Ronda in the Newman Center office at email@example.com or 337-3106 ext 101. For Adult Baptism please contact Dan Teets at St. Mary's Parish office at 337-4314 or firstname.lastname@example.org
