"The soul is regenerated in the sacred waters of baptism and thus becomes God's child."
- ST. MAXIMILIAN KOLBE
We want to assist you in having your child less than 7 years of age receive the Sacrament of Baptism. (Note: If you are seeking Baptism for children who are seven years or older, please contact Youth and Family Ministry at 562-947-5637 x115.)
Congratulations and welcome to St. Bruno! We are privileged to join you in arranging for this first Sacrament. Baptism begins the life-long journey of your child getting to know Jesus and experience His love in all events of life. Through Baptism, the love of God touches the newly baptized in an important way. The effects of original sin are washed away as your child enters the community of Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit enters the soul of the newly adopted child of God.
COVID-19 Guidelines and Baptism Preparation Process
Although the Parish Offices remains closed, we welcome you and your family for Baptism. Information on this website and guidance from Selene Garcia, our Baptismal Coordinator, will fulfill what is needed. Selene may be contacted at Baptism@stbrunochurch.org or by calling 562-947-5637, extension 336.
Presently, we are celebrating Mass and the Sacrament of Baptism outdoors in compliance with County Health Department and Archdiocesan guidelines. Therefore, the wearing of face coverings and social distancing (except within family units) are requirements, but specifics will be updated as your baptism date approaches.
This site will help your family with the selection of Godparents, details on preparation, guidance for viewing the REBORN videos, and forms for completing registration and making the $50 donation during online registration for Infant Baptism.
