Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit, 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." CCC 1213
The sacrament of Baptism may be celebrated at any weekend Mass at any of the parish churches on the 2nd and 4th weekends of the month. Parents who wish to have their child baptized are asked to attend a baptism preparation class, even if another child has already been baptized. Classes are generally offered in December, March, June, and September. Please contact the parish office for further information. If you have questions regarding the baptism of older children or adults, please contact the pastor regarding the RCIA program.
