Baptisms may be scheduled by calling the parish office at 701-663-9562. A Baptism class is required to be taken before scheduling a Baptism at the Church of Saint Joseph (families need to take the class only once, preferably before the birth of their first child.) To schedule a class, please contact the parish office at 701-663-9562. Classes will be held on the first Sunday of every month at 4:00pm in room 100. When you call the office, we will put you on our list for the next available class.
Upon calling the parish office to schedule a Baptism, we will be asking for the following information:
* Preferred date you would like the Baptism to take place (please note that the date and time you choose may not be available, please have a couple of choices)
* Baby' full name
* Date of birth
* Location of birth
* Father's full legal name
* Mother's full legal name and maiden name
* Current address
* Phone number
* Names of the godparents*
* Per the diocese, we are also requiring a birth certificate (original or copy) for each child. The certificate will need to include full name of the child, birth date and place, and parents names (with mother's maiden name). We can make a copy of the original birth certificate and return original to you.
Godparents need to be one male and one female. One must be a confirmed, practicing Catholic and both must be at least 16 or older. If there are any additional questions about Godparents, they can be discussed at the time of scheduling the Baptism.
