The Sacrament of 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: Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water in the word.

Baptisms are normally celebrated on the 1st & 3rd Sundays of the month after the last Mass of the day.
All first-time parents wishing to have their children baptized need to attend a "Pre-Jordan," preparation class. Please call the Parish Office to schedule a time.
