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.
The Sacrament of Infant Baptism
The sacrament of infant Baptism is appropriate for children who have not yet reached the age of reason (seven years old).
Once a child has had their seventh birthday, they may still receive the Sacrament of Baptism however, the preparation process is known as The Rite of Christian Initation of Adults (Adapted for Children) - see below.
Families seeking the sacrament of infant Baptism are asked to be registered with our parish. Parents must attend a Baptism Preparation Session before the celebration can be scheduled. Godparents are strongly encouraged to attend a preparation session.
The sacrament of infant Baptism is typically celebrated at Epiphany of the Lord during a Baptism Service. Baptisms services are held twice a month. Celebration dates and times are subject to change. Schedules for upcoming celebrations are provided during the Baptism Preparation Session.
