Baptism is our birth as Christians; it is an immersion into the life of Christ and into the life of the believing community. In Baptism we become a dwelling place of the most Blessed Trinity, a holy temple.


It is the first of the seven sacraments, and the “door” which gives us access to the other sacraments. Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist constitute the “sacraments” of initiation and they begin a new life in Christ and the Holy Spirit.  



The following steps are necessary to be baptized at Our Lady Queen of Martyrs:


  • Families must register to attend the Baptism Preparation/Formation Program by contacting the Parish Office  at (248) 644-8620. The parish secretary will complete the registration form during the telephone call. Note:  Names of godparents should be provided at that time.
  • Parents are required to attend the formation session. Attendance may take place before or after the birth of the baby.
