Baptism

 

         

 

                                   The Sacrament of Baptism is the foundation of Christian life, the entrance to the life in the Spirit and access to the other Sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from original

sin, we become heirs to the Kingdom of God, and are incorporated into the Church and become sharers in the Mission of the Church. (Catechism of the Catholic Church 1994 Reference 1213).

 

The Sacrament of Baptism is often called "The door of the Church," because it is the first of the seven sacraments not only in time (since most Catholics receive it as infants) but in priority, since the

reception of the other sacraments depends on it. It is the first of the three Sacraments of Initiation, (for a convert)

the other two being the Sacrament of Confirmation and the Sacrament of Holy Communion.
 

 

Baptisms of infants and young children are celebrated, for families who are members of the parish. 

If this is the first child,  Parents generally must attend a preparation session

before the baptism can be celebrated.

Baptismal Preparation Classes will be offered if there is a need
