Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water. Through Baptism, we are freed from sin and reborn as sons of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission: “Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water in the word.”
If you (the parent of the child to be baptized) is NOT a parishioner of Madonna Church, please register first by clicking here, then return to this page to register your child’s baptism.
If a godparent is NOT a parishioner of Madonna Church, he or she must get a “sponsor letter” from their Catholic church confirming she or he is a Catholic in good standing and qualified to be a godparent. The letter must be imprinted with the church’s seal and signed by the pastor. The sponsor letters must be submitted 2 weeks prior to the baptism date to: Madonna Church, c/o Max Almenas, 340 Main Street, Fort Lee, NJ, 07024.
If you are baptizing a child for the first time or you’ve been asked to be the godparent of a child, you’ll need to take the required baptism class offered for free at Madonna Church.
If the Baptism candidate is 8 years old or older, please refer to our RCIA program.
