Baptisms: Contact Jim or Cindy Roberts (563-870-4428) before planning or setting a Baptism date.  Due to the high number of Baptisms in the Pastorate, classes fill quickly so allow several months to be scheduled into a class. All parents planning a Baptism need attend a Baptism class (the first Tuesday of each month, except on holidays).  Baptisms typically do not take place during Advent or Lent.
