St. Daniel Catholic Community
Worship Faith Christian Stewardship



on the newest addition to your family!

We are excited, that you are considering the importance of faith in both your child's life and your own! We look forward to assisting you and your child, on their first step, towards their lifelong journey in faith!

Baptisms are usually celebrated at St. Daniel on the first and third Sundays of the month at a 12:30 p.m. Baptism Service.  (Holidays and Summer schedules are an exception).  These dates are indicated on the parish calendar.



To arrange for a Baptism:

Infants and Children six and under:

  1. Parents must be registered as parishioners at St. Daniel for a period of at least three months prior to Baptism. If you are new to St. Daniel and need to "register, please see Fr. Ron Babich after a weekend Mass to receive a New Parishioner packet with the parish registration information enclosed.
  2. Call the Faith Formation Office at 248-625-1750 to request Baptism and receive an email link to register for the sacrament.
  3. First-time Baptism Families will be contacted by Deacon Mike McCormick and will prepare for the Sacrament with him.

    A note on Godparents: Please prayerfully and thoughtfully choose godparents who will support your child in their faith. At least one godparent must be a baptized and confirmed Catholic, 16 years of age or more. All godparents must be baptized, even if they are of a non-Catholic faith. (Younger or non-baptized persons can serve as “witnesses” to the adult Catholic godparent).

    For Baptism of children over six years of age, please see the Children’s RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Children).

    For Baptism of Adults, please see the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults).
