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 and in the word."

(From the Catechism of the Catholic Church)

Baptism Preparation
Parents preparing to celebrate the baptism of their child are encouraged to attend class prior to the birth of that child so they can better prepare for his/her baptism.  Pre-register by calling Deacon George Butterfield at 340-0691 ext. 110.

Adult Baptism Preparation is conducted through the RCIA Program.
