Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit (vitae spiritualis ianua), 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)
Parents wanting to baptize their children must be registered at the parish and first-time parents must attend an instruction class. Baptisms are usually held after the 1:00 PM Sunday Mass.
Adults desiring baptism must first be enrolled in the RCIA program.
