Sacrament of Baptism

Baptism Application

Baptism begins our life in the Church, frees us from original sin, takes away any personal sins and gives grace to live as Christians. We are reborn of the water and the Spirit and share in the life of the risen Jesus. Baptism is the most important gift we can give our children. It gives them a "new life" in water and the Spirit and affirms them as members of the parish community. We offer Baptismal class once a month for parents with a child to be baptized. This provides a wonderful opportunity for parents to review the sacrament and to receive support in living the Catholic faith within their family. Registration for the class is required, watch the bulletin. Baptisms are performed during Mass
