1213 Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit (vitae spiritualis ianua), 4 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 in the word."5 Baptism is the first holy sacrament followed by Eucharist, Confirmation, Reconciliation, Anointing of the sick, Marriage, and Holy Order.
Baptisms for children under 7: Parents and Godparents must attend a pre-baptismal class which is scheduled through our Parish Office.
Baptisms for children over 7: Once children have right the age of reason (at seven years old) they must be enrolled in a catechetical program to begin preparation to enter into the Catholic Faith.
