Congratulations on the new little life that has joined your family!
For the first child in a family, Incarnate Word requires a baptism preparation class. These classes are offered on the first Wednesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. At this meeting or by calling the parish office (314-576-5366 ext. 10), you may schedule the baptism and receive more information.
