You will then be contacted for an interview and given the necessary dates. (If your child is over the age of 7 or if you are an adult needing baptism, we would love to journey with you through the sacraments – please see the information about RCIA – Rite of Chistian Initiation) If you are interested in assisting this team, we will provide the training. All you need is to be a person who enjoys working with parents and their children and have a willingness to learn more about our faith. We are in need of people to help instruct the families in both English and Spanish, and/or to assist the priest and deacons with the actual baptismal ceremonies held once every other month.  If you are interested in this ministry, please contact the Katherine Cho at 909-797-2533 ext. 225 or KaCho@sfxc.org
