Baptism

 

Baptism is the sacrament of faith.

But faith needs the community of believers. It is only within the faith of the whole community of the Church that each of the faithful can believe. The faith required for Baptism is not a perfect and mature faith, but a beginning that is called to develop.

Having Your Child Baptized

            Congratulations on the birth of your child, and along with all the other important decisions you’ve already been making, choosing to have your child baptized is one of the most important.

            The first step in preparing to have your child baptized is to call the parish office.  While all the registration forms are available on-line and the links are listed below, we’d be glad to speak with you in person to help answer any questions that you may have.

            Parents having their first child baptized, (or those who haven’t had a child baptized in several years), and those “first-time godparents”, are invited to join us in a baptism preparation session.  It’s a great time to meet other young families and to learn and re-learn the important the role of parents and godparents as the first and best teachers of their children in the ways of faith.

For the grace of Baptism to unfold, the parent’s help is important,  So Too is the role of the godfather and godmother, who must be firm believers, able and ready to help the newly baptized – child or adult – on the road of Christian life.
