Infant Baptism

The Rite of Baptism is filled with spiritual significance, beauty, and grace. Baptism isn’t something that happens on the outside alone, but changes us on the inside.

Infant Baptism is for children 0 to 7 years old, if your child is over the age of 7 please contact Julie Martinez at julie@sthelenchurch.org or (281)485-5457
