For Catholics, the Sacrament of Baptism is the first step in a lifelong journey of commitment and discipleship. Whether we are baptized as infants or adults, Baptism is the Church’s way of celebrating and enacting the embrace of God.
Sacraments of Baptism and Matrimony updates (07-12-2020): the Rites of the Sacrament of Baptism will be celebrated every first and third Saturday of the month at 10:30am and 11:30am. Baptismal Preparation Classes are meeting via Zoom. Please contact Father Edgar at edgar.elamparo@DSJ.org or (408) 997-5107 if you would like more information or have any questions.
A Note About Photography
We understand that you want to cherish the memories of this day through photography. We also want to preserve the sanctity of this special day. Flash photography and many people taking pictures detract from the liturgy and can be very distracting to the community. To avoid this, Holy Spirit Parish has a special set of ministers who work with you, your family and the priest to photograph these memories within the holiness of the sacrament.
Our Photography Ministry will use their special gifts to capture all the moments of your child’s Baptism Mass. They will also take family photos and photos with the priest after Mass. Since they have worked extensively with the priest and the liturgist, they can often capture images and memories that no one else can. For additional information, please contact Walter Seepersad at 408-250-0736 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
