Home/Our Parish/Sacraments/Baptism


"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


If you are seeking the Sacrament of Baptism as an adult, or you have a child age seven or older, you can find more information on our RCIA page.


If you are seeking the Sacrament of Baptism for an infant or child under the age of seven we require families to participate in a Baptism Preparation Class. You can see our schedule of Preparation Classes and Baptism Weekends below:
