Infants and Children Younger than School Age
Through baptism, your child is formally welcomed into membership in the Church. This is an important decision on your part, because as the parents, you are the first teachers of your child in the practice of the faith. It is also an opportune time for the family of the child to become more active in Christian faith and in participation as members of this Catholic community, which serves as a wonderful model of faith for your child.
The requirements for baptism at St. Priscilla involve participation in a pre-Baptism class. Classes are typically offered the third Sunday of every other month following Mass, and are listed in the bulletin. The class meets from approximately 12:30-1:30 pm in room 7 near the church office. Please call Mary Jo in the main office to pre-register (248-476-4700).
We recommend that if possible you attend the class before the birth. A baptismal date may also be reserved in advance.
We recognize that each family situation is unique, and planning a baptism often raises numerous questions. If you have questions or concerns, please contact, the main office so we can assist you.
School Age Children
Children who have reached school age but have not yet been baptized are prepared through the RCIC program (RCIA adapted for Children). Children are prepared for baptism both through regular religious education classes and additional preparation that is determined on an individual basis. Please contact the Religious Education office at
Adults who have not been baptized are invited to participate in the RCIA process (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults). You will find more information on the RCIA section of this web site, and you are invited to contact Deacon Bob at
