Baptism

Baptism

 

“Go, therefore, make disciples of all nations; baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.”

- Matthew 28: 19-20

 

Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life and holds the first place among the sacraments, because is the gateway to life in the Spirit and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are made members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in its mission.

Our Baptism Ministry is pleased to help your family prepare for the special event of your child's entrance into our faith community. Please contact our office at least three months prior to your preferred baptism date to inquire about and register for Baptism. For upcoming class dates, please scroll to the bottom of this page.
