The Sacrament of Baptism

“Go, therefore, and 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

Baptism the first of three sacraments of initiation administered by the Catholic Church (the other two are Confirmation and Eucharist). Baptism cleanses us from sin, welcomes us into the church and makes us members of Christ. Through it we are reborn as children of God.

Infant Baptism

Children through the age of six years old are baptized at a group celebration of the sacrament with other families in the parish. The sacrament is provided in the three main languages of the parish at 2:00 pm in the church on the respective Sundays.
