Baptism

baptism2 (1)Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit (vitae spiritualis ianua), 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: “Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water in the word.” From the Catechism of the Catholic Church 1213

Baptismal Preparations

Parents wanting to baptize their infant are requested to attend a preparation class which offers them insight and education about the Sacrament of Baptism. Baptisms are scheduled throughout the year particularly in conjunction with feast days. Please call the parish office before you make arrangements at least 6 weeks in advance.

Adults and older children interested in becoming full members of the Catholic faith prepare through RCIA. RCIA classes begins in the fall and the candidates are baptized at the Easter Vigil.

If you have any questions, please contact the Parish Office at 912-897-5156.
