Catholic Sacraments are milestones in our lives, where God reveals to us His great love and especially who He is. Baptism is the First of the Three Sacraments of Initiation in the Roman Catholic Tradition. Confirmation and Holy Eucharist are the other two. The word baptism in its origins is Greek and means "immersion" and "bath." Immersion in water is a sign of death and emersion out of the water means new life. To bathe in water is also to undergo cleansing. Saint Paul sums up this truth when he says, "You were buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through faith in the power of God, who raised him from the dead" (Col 2:12).
To schedule your child’s baptism you must first ensure you are registered with the Church. It is also required that you (the parents) have Baptismal Formation.
All first-time parents, desiring to have their child baptized, are asked to contact the parish office at 765-742-2107.
