Baptism

“I have baptized you with water; he will baptize you with the holy Spirit.” Mark 1:8

The Sacrament of Baptism is the first step in a lifelong journey of commitment and discipleship in the Catholic Church. Whether we are baptized as infants or adults, Baptism is the Church's way of celebrating and enacting the embrace of God.

St. Paul expressed the meaning of Baptism in terms of a break with the old and the beginning of new life in Christ.

We celebrate Baptism on most Sundays at 1:30 p.m. For infant Baptisms, please call the Parish Office at 744-8566 at least two months before the birth of your child to arrange an appointment for an interview. A pre-Baptismal meeting for parents and godparents, held on the first Monday of the month at 8:00 p.m. in the Chapel, is required. Godparents must be confirmed, practicing Catholics.
