At S. Thomas, we encourage parents, godparents, family members and friends to share in this beautiful expression of initiation into the Christian faith.

The baptism of school-age children is arranged through the youth minister. Adult baptism, as part of joining the Catholic Church, is handled by the RCIA program.

Our baptisms take place after the 10:30 Mass on the fourth Sunday of the month or by special arrangement with the pastor. Please call the Parish Office (253-1461), to register for baptism preparation and to arrange a date for baptism.  Parents need only to attend baptism preparation for the first child baptized.  Coordinator:  Chelsea Durnil, 812-582-0501 or ctisdale2@gmail.com
