Sacraments of the Catholic Church
Baptism Baptism is the first of the three sacraments of initiation in the Catholic Church by which individuals are freed from all sin and endowed with the gift of divine life. Baptism confers membership in the Church and calls the baptized person to holiness and mission. The Catholic Church baptizes infants at the request of their parents and baptizes adults through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). The eight major elements in the baptismal ceremony convey the meaning of the sacrament and teach us to appreciate life in Christ. Take a quiz to test your knowledge about the sacrament of baptism.
Baptism Preparation Classes
These classes are held four times a year (January, April, July and October). Part one deals with the sacramental symbols of baptism. Part 2 covers the parental role in the sacrament. The class lasts about 1 hour 15 minutes. It is recommended that the classes be completed before the baby is born. Pre- registration is required. Please contact the parish office to sign up .
