It is the official position of the church that all parents should be registered at a church before a baptism can take place. (If you are not a member, please click here to download a registration form.) Once you’ve registered and taken the baptism class (details below), you can move forward with setting up a date for this sacrament.
Our baptisms occur on Saturdays, either at 10 a.m. or after the 5 p.m. Mass, whichever the family prefers. Dates for these need to be arranged with the Parish Office in advance of the baptism.
The Baptismal Registration Form needs to be filled out and returned to St. Ambrose by mail or scanned and sent by email. Parish address and email are at the bottom of this page.
The Godparent Sponsor Form needs to be completed by the pastor of the godparent and returned to St. Ambrose. Details are on the form.
Baptism Preparation for Parents
Parents having their first child baptized need to attend a baptism class, which is held quarterly on Sunday afternoons with Fr. Joe. The location of the class alternates between St. Ambrose and St. Patrick Parish Centers.
The next baptism preparation class is Sunday, February 3, 2021, at 1 p.m. in the St. Patrick Parish Center (basement of the church). To register, please call the office at 309-787-4593 or email email@example.com.
