St. Margaret of Scotland Catholic Church

Baptism Preparation Ministry



We, the members of the baptism preparation ministry of St. Margaret of Scotland Catholic Church, understand the importance of baptism as the key sacrament of initiation, and believe our mission is:

    • To prepare and encourage parents to raise their children in the Catholic faith

    • To share our experiences as Christian parents at the baptism preparation classes

    • To participate in the Rite of Baptism by symbolizing newness of life in baptism   

       through water, white garment and a lighted candle

    • To assist priests and families at baptism ceremonies, and

    • To pray for the baptized children and their families.

​Please contact the Rectory (301-336-3344) for more information or to schedule your child to be Baptized.
