(A Sacrament of Initiation)
By Baptism, we become members of the Church, the Body of Christ.
Baptism is often called the "gateway sacrament" because it represents incorporation into the Church as the Body of Christ and is the "door" through which we have access to all of the other sacraments. Through Baptism, we are freed from original sin and reborn as sons and daughters in the Sonship of Jesus Christ. By becoming members of the Church, we receive a share in her mission to form all people into the New Covenant of all races, peoples, and cultures into the life of Jesus Christ. Baptism permanently marks our souls for God by God so that he can live his life through us.
The parish provides a Baptism Preparation Program for expectant parents. Though not required, Godparents are welcome to attend. If you are expecting a child, please call to register for this program. Classes are offered on the 4th Sunday of the month after the 10:30 am Mass.
Baptisms take place by appointment on the 2nd Sundays of the month.
