“Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit” –Matthew 28:19
Baptism is the very first sacrament that a Catholic can receive. This is where it all begins. When we are baptized, we become children of God, members of the Church, and are given eternal life. A person can only be baptized once as a Christian. The symbols of baptism are water, which washes away our sins, and light, which is the Holy Spirit giving us new life in Christ. Baptism washes away the Original Sin incurred by Adam and Eve and allows us to be born again in Christ.
Please contact the Rectory in order to arrange for your child to be baptized. Information sessions for first-time parents are required prior to baptism.
