For getting your child younger than age 7 baptized in Holy Name, follow the five steps below.  For those older than age 7, click here.

Step One - Register

Please complete the Holy Name registration form here.  Scroll down to find Holy Name Parish & St Martin of Tours, Steamboat Springs.

Step Two - Fill out the Baptism Form

Step Three - Godparents (Sponsors)

You may have one or two godparents. If you have two Godparents, they must be one male and one female. At least one of your sponsors must be a Godparent that is a registered and practicing Catholic. The second sponsor, if you have one, can be a Godparent or Christian witness. A Christian witness is a non-Catholic Christian sponsor. Godparents are welcome to attend our baptism class or a class at their home parish. We do not require the class for Godparents. All Godparents must complete a Godparent Eligibility Form, signed by their pastor and return it to us within two weeks of the scheduled baptism date.

Step Four - Take the Baptism Class

Parents need to attend a baptism preparation class. Godparents are encouraged to attend as well. In preparation for the baptism class, we request that couples watch the three Reborn video segments on the Formed website. The website may be found at formed.org. (Register on the site and enter our parish code K6THYD to access its content.  We provide a one hour class for parents and Godparents to prepare for baptism, the first Sacrament of Initiation into the Catholic Church.  Please contact Erin Kissane at 970 879-2058 eringkissane@gmail.com or in espanol, Lupita Hathaway at 970 819-6084 lupitabens@yahoo.com to schedule a class.
