The Sacrament of Baptism
Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit, and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission: Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water in the word.
Parish membership is required. Parents must call the parish office to schedule a Baptism Preparation meeting with the Pastor prior to scheduling a Baptism date. The Baptism Preparation meeting will help teach parents with newly born babies about the Baptismal responsibilities they have as parents.
