Baptism


Congratulations on the birth of your child!

 

The Parish Community shares in your joy. Thank you for wanting to have your baby join the family of the Church through Baptism. By asking for your baby’s Baptism, you are publicly thanking God for His gift to you and making a commitment to bring up your child in the Christian faith.

We will help you carry out your decision by giving you our wholehearted support.

 

Why Baptism?

 

“Baptism is the way out of the kingdom of death into life, the gateway to the Church and the beginning of a lasting communion with God.”

Catechism of the Catholic Church  [1213-1216] [1276-1278]
