sac-baptismBaptism is one of the three sacraments of Christian Initiation (along with Confirmation and Eucharist), through which Catholics are incorporated as full members of the Church.

  • Baptism is the foundation for the Christian life;
  • gives sanctifying grace, that is, God’s life;
  • gives the baptized a new birth in which he or she becomes a child of God;
  • cleanses people from original sin and any personal sin (older children & adults);
  • incorporates members into the life, practices and mission of the Church;
  • prepares them for worship and is necessary for the salvation.

Baptisms are arranged by appointment. They take place during or after Sunday Eucharist.

Attendance at a preparation session is required.  Please contact the parish office for more information, or to set up an initial meeting with the Pastor.
