Baptism makes one a member of the body of Christ and incorporates one into the Church, sharing in its mission. The principal effects of Baptism are purification from sins and a new birth in the Holy Spirit. The Catholic Church baptizes all ages. For infants the Church desires formation and catechesis for parents in preparation for the baptism of their children. Adolescents and adults are prepared for Baptism through a process called the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation). Please call the church office if you or your child needs to be baptized.
For baptism of infants, parents are required to schedule a short meeting with the pastor and come into the office to fill out some paperwork.
"The greatest legacy that you can leave your children is faith." --Pope Francis, Jan. 10th, 2016 while baptizing 26 babies in Rome.
