Owen Benjamin Curtis became a member of the Body of Christ on Sunday, March 12, through the celebration of the sacrament of Baptism by Deacon Kevin Orth. Owen was presented by his parents, Benjamin and Sara (Jewett) Curtis. Owen's godparents are Jacob Jewett and Chelsea Ozuch.
Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them,
for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.
Congratulations on the birth of your child!
Baptisms for infants and children up to age 7 are celebrated during the second full weekend of each month during one of the three weekend Masses. For extenuating circumstances or other questions, please contact Laurie Seybert at (517) 669-8335 ext.16. No stipend (gratuity) is given for a Baptism during the Mass but we do ask a gratuity is given to the presider (deacon or visiting priest) who does a Baptism after a Mass.
We encourage parents to sign up for and attend a Baptismal Preparation Class prior to the birth of your child. Participation in this class is required for parents before the baptism of a first child. It is held at our parish office location, 409 Wilson Street, DeWitt, beginning at 7:00PM.
