Baptism

Baptism

The Sacrament of Baptism is the gateway to all of the other Sacraments. This Sacrament is the foundation of all Christian life from which we receive grace, the gift of God’s own life. 


Baptism makes a person a member of the Body of Christ, the Church, and gives that person all of the rights and responsibilities of being a Catholic Christian.  A person is welcomed into the community and given a share in Christ’s mission, to be a living sign of the presence of God in thought, word and action.  This powerful Sacrament’s primary effect is the beginning of new life in Jesus Christ. 

If you have a baby or school-aged child whom you would like to have baptized, or would like to be baptized as an adult, please contact Fr. John at the parish office at 823-1090.
