Families can register as parishioners at the meeting and are also provided with information regarding their child’s Baptism. Please call the St. Francis de Sales Parish Office at (847) 438-6622 to register for a meeting.

Baptisms are scheduled each Sunday at 1:30 p.m., after the 12:30 p.m. Mass. If you would like to schedule a Saturday Baptism, please contact Father David F. Ryan at (847) 726-4723 or the Ministry Center at (847) 438-6622.
