Baptism, the first and fundamental sacrament is the gate to the other sacraments. Baptism is the purifying and sanctifying sacrament of rebirth and the means by which its recipients are incorporated into the Church in a bond of unity.
Baptismal preparation class is required for parents who have not taken this course within the past three years. These sessions are designed to give parents an opportunity to better understand the sacrament and reflect on their own faith as they contemplate celebrating the baptism of their child. The sessions are held every other month. Baptisms are scheduled during or after the weekend liturgies during the year, except during the Lenten season. Contact the parish office for upcoming class dates and times.
