Through baptism, we are called to be priests, prophets and kings.


Go, then, to all peoples everywhere and make them my disciples: baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, and teach them to obey everything I have commanded you. And I will be with you always, to the end of the age.
— Matthew 28:19-20

What is baptism?

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 and daughters of God. We become members of Christ, incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission. "Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water in the word.”

How to Obtain a Baptism

Baptisms for ages 6 & under: Baptisms can be scheduled only after the completion of classes and the submission of all needed documents to the parish office. Godparents must be living in accordance with the Catholic Faith.
