Sacrament of Baptism


The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A.) is a catechetical process offered to adults who have chosen to become part of our Catholic tradition. This formation is a weekly process beginning with inquiry sessions that are offered year round. Parishioners are invited to welcome and support these future Catholics by serving as their Sponsor or Church Companion. Please call Nicole Cook  at 402-339-0990.


Infant baptisms are celebrated during the 9:00 a.m., or noon Mass on the third Sunday of the month. They are also celebrated on Saturday mornings and on Sunday afternoons following the noon Mass.  Please call the parish office at 402-339-3285 before your child is born to register for the classes.

Baptism preparation is required for parents presenting their child to be baptized in the Catholic Church. St. Columbkille offers a two-part preparation program. The program provides parents with information on child development, parenting, support for their marriage, family spirituality, baptismal history, and theology.


Children over age seven in need of baptism participate in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Children sessions offered by the Religious Formation Office. Please contact Lori Long at 402-339-0990 for information.

All parents are expected to participate in the baptismal preparation program.
