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. " (CCC 1213)
For infants and children 7 years and under, Baptisms take place once a month following a preparation program for the parents and the Godparents. The baptismal application is available to download or can be filled out at the Parish Office.
