Sacraments: Baptism

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.” -Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1213

Classes are scheduled with Ellisa Hayes, the Director of Faith Formation. Call the parish office to schedule a class.

The Sacrament of Baptism is normally scheduled at 2:30pm on Sundays, but possibly can be scheduled for another time with Fr. Matthew.

Godparents – To be a godparent or sponsor for Baptism, one must have received the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and First Holy Communion; be a registered member of a Catholic Church; attend weekly Mass; and practice our Catholic faith with integrity. If married, the person must be married according to the laws of the Catholic Church. Please contact the parish office to be a godparent or sponsor for Baptism.
