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. –Catechism 1213

At the end of his ministry on earth, Jesus commended His Apostles, “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” (Matthew 28:19).  We fulfill Jesus’ mission by imparting the grace-filled waters of baptism to numerous people each year.

Baptisms of Children normally occur during or immediately following Saturday evening/Sunday morning Masses.
