Scheduling & Arrangements
Baptisms are held on most Sundays at 12:30 pm at Our Lady of Fatima Church and 1:15 pm at Annunciation Church. Only three babies are permitted at each baptism. All first time parents must attend a Jordan Conference prior to the Baptism, which are usually held the first Fridays of the month at 7:30PM in the Parish Room of the Rectory. Please arrange for Baptism and Jordan Conference by calling the Rectory as soon as possible.
When considering godparents, please understand that a godparent should:
– be a practicing Catholic who is ready, willing and able to help his or her godchild live a Christian life.
– have received all three Sacraments: Baptism, Communion and Confirmation.
– be at least 16 years old.
– lead a life in harmony with the faith and the role to be undertaken.
In addition, godparents are required to obtain a Sponsor Certificate from the church that they attend, indicating that they are parishioners in good standing.
The phone number at the Rectory is (914) 779-7345.
If you have intentions of being a sponsor in the near future, you must be a registered parishioner for at least four months to obtain a Sponsor Certificate. Parents must supply Sponsor Certificates for each godparent prior to the baptism. A sponsor certificate is necessary for a person to act as a sponsor for someone who is receiving the sacrament of Baptism or Confirmation.
