For Catholics, the Sacrament of Baptism is the first step in a lifelong journey of commitment and discipleship. Whether we are baptized as infants or adults, Baptism is the Church’s way of celebrating and enacting the embrace of God.
Infant Baptisms are offered the third Saturday of each month (except during Lent).
Please register your child for Baptism by calling the Parish Office during business hours.
If this is your FIRST CHILD being baptized, parents must attended a two hour workshop which can be scheduled by contacting Theresa Lisiecki, our Director of Religious Education, at 734-464-4435 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Classes MUST BE attended at least TWO MONTHS before baptism.
Due to our current pandemic crisis classes are scheduled on an individual basis occurring here at St. Colette, preferably in the evening. To schedule a class please contact Theresa Lisiecki at 734-464-4435 or by email at email@example.com.
The Catholic Sacrament of Reconciliation (also known as Penance) has three elements: conversion, confession and celebration. In it we find God’s unconditional mercy and forgiveness; as a result we are called to forgive others
Children going into their 4th grade year or older are at an age they can prepare to receive their First Reconciliation. Preparation for the sacrament begins in the fall with the reception of the sacrament in late January. Due to our current pandemic crisis, while we will offer something for those families interested, we are not at this time prepared to say what.

Catholics believe these to be truly the body and blood of Jesus Christ. Children eight years and older are invited to prepare for this sacrament
