Baptism

 

Congratulations on the birth of your newborn child, a gift from God. We rejoice with you on your desire to present your child for the Sacrament of Baptism into our parish community.

The Sacrament of Baptism is as solemn and important as birth itself. The most important part of preparing for your child’s baptism is to look at your own faith. Infant baptism can only be meaningful if the parents are committed to raise the child in the faith. Parents need to remember that they are the primary religious educators of their children. The sacrament of baptism ushers us into the divine life, cleanses us from sin, and initiates us as members of the Christian community. It is the foundation for the sacramental life.
