The sacrament of Baptism is considered a Sacrament of Initiation. The other two Sacraments of Initiation are Eucharist and Confirmation. To initiate means “to begin.” In this case, when a person is baptized, he or she begins a life shared with God.
Just as our natural birth is the beginning of our earthly life, baptism is our birth into an eternal life. Christ calls it being “born anew” (John 3:7). When we are baptized, we become adopted sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father and members of the Catholic faith community.
Just as our natural birth is the beginning of our earthly life, baptism is our birth into an eternal life.
Baptisms are held every other Sunday at 1:30 p.m. in the church, except during the Season of Lent and on the second Sunday of July.
