The Sacrament of Baptism
Infant Baptisms are celebrated during the period of new born to 6 years of age.
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: "Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water in the word." CCC 1213.
English Baptisms are celebrated the fourth Saturday of the Month at 9:00 a.m.
Please note we do not celebrate Baptisms during Lent
