At least one of the parents of the child to be baptized must be a registered member of Holy Family and show signs of active participation in the parish and worship. To register as members of Holy Family, please make an appointment with Michelle Ludtke at firstname.lastname@example.org or 920-921-0580 ext. 123. Appointments can be made during the following times:

The registration meeting will take approximately 20 minutes at the Holy Family Church Office, 271 Fourth Street Way, Fond du Lac. At this meeting, please bring the year and location (parish/church/city/state) where you, and anyone else you may be registering, (such as a spouse and/or dependent children), received the Sacraments of Baptism, First Communion and Confirmation. If anyone was baptized in a non-Catholic Christian church, that information is also requested. Please bring this sacramental information for all persons that you are registering to the meeting.
Baptisms are typically not scheduled during Lent. The baptism of children not from this parish, can only take place with permission and instruction from the parish of the inquiring family. Permission from their pastor must be given, in writing, to the Holy Family pastor or deacon who is to preside at the baptism. It should be noted that the pastor is obliged to delay baptism in cases where there is little or no practice of faith in the home. In such instances, we will work with the parents until they are ready to provide an acceptable religious environment for the child.
Baptism times and dates vary by parish site, please view the attached schedule. Please contact Michelle to discuss which Mass and date will work best for you. Deacons are ordained by the Archbishop and are commissioned to do baptisms in the same way that our priests baptize.
The Baptism Registration Form is attached below in both English and Spanish language versions. You may also register online using the form below. If you have registered as members of Holy Family and have plans to or attended the Baptismal Preparation Class, please fill out the Baptism Registration Form and return it to Michelle at email@example.com, or mail/bring it to the church offices. Once the form is received, we will schedule your child’s Baptism.
