An opportunity for initiation ministers – baptism team members, priests, deacons, pastoral musicians, and other lay ministers – to explore the new Order of Baptism of Children, coming soon! We’ll take a look at what’s new in the ritual book and share best practices for baptismal ministry with one another.

Fr. Paul Turner, Nov 19 & 20

Areas of focus will include strategies for welcoming families to the rite of baptism, preaching the baptismal homily, music for the rite of baptism outside of Mass, ars celebrandi of the rite, baptism as a moment of evangelization, and more.

Join us as we recommit ourselves to welcoming children into God’s family with great joy!


The Office of Priestly Formation will fund the registration of any priest with an archdiocesan assignment.
Priests only should contact Sarah Frohmiller, 513.263.6651 by Nov.  to guarantee lunch and seating.
