Baptism of Infants and Children
Parents who will be having their infants or children (under 7)baptized at the Catholic Center are required to attend a baptism preparation class.  These single session classes are  offered once a month, at 9:30am. Godparents are encouraged to attend with parents, but are not required by the Catholic Center.  Parents and/or godparents of infants who will be baptized at another Catholic Church are also welcome to attend this class, as required by the church of baptism.  Contact Suzie Blaydes if you would like to attend a class. 

For more information and inquiries, please contact Suzie Blaydes by calling the office at 706-543-2293 or by email at
