We rejoice with you in the birth of your child and look forward to welcoming your child into the family of God and the communion of the Holy Catholic Church.
Baptism is no mere social event, but the Sacrament in which Christ Himself purifies, justifies and sanctifies (cf. 1 Peter 1:23) your child for eternal life. "Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian Life, the gateway to life in the spirit, and the door which gives access to other sacraments” (Catechism of the Catholic Church 1213).
Baptismal classes: Please attend baptismal instructions before the birth of the child. (See recent bulletins for dates of Baptismal classes .)
