Baptism”Unless a man be born again of water and the Holy Spirit, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God.” —John 3:5
For Catholics, the Sacrament of Baptism is the first step in a lifelong journey of commitment and discipleship. Whether we are baptized as infants or adults, Baptism is the Church’s way of celebrating and enacting the embrace of God.
In preparation for infant baptism, parents are required to attend one meeting, held the third Sunday of the month at 9:00am in the Rectory, immediately after the 8:00am Mass. Parents are encouraged to fulfill this obligation prior to the birth of the baby. Reservations are required, please phone Greg Henkel, 392-4711 or email him at email@example.com.
“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.” —Catechism of the Catholic Church #1213
