GUIDELINES FOR BAPTISM
Parishioners wishing to have their child baptized should be registered with the parish and must contact a member of the clergy as early as 4 months before the date of the baptism. For an adult who wishes to be baptized, please refer to our Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) page.
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.
