Baptism

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.

Catechism of the Catholic Church 1213

Families seeking the sacrament of Baptism should contact the parish office to begin the preparation with the pastor. Parents will need to complete a request form to begin the process. For children in Kindergarten through 10th grade who are enrolled in our religious education program will be prepared during the course of their first year of enrollment. Baptism will take place at the end of a full year of instruction. Whether infant or older a request form still needs to be processed before beginning the process. Also required is the completion of Godparent sponsor forms and submission of the child’s Birth certificate.
