Congratulations! The birth of a child is a great event for you as parents and for the parish as your spiritual family. To share this joy you plan to have a family celebration. By baptising your child, the Church also welcomes a new member. That calls for a celebration of the Christian community.
Baptism is a Sacrament of Initiation by which the child is made, in a special way, a child of God and a member of the community of believers. The effects of this Sacrament cannot result without a certain faith response and cooperation on the part of the parents.
Pre-Baptism instruction is required. Please download and complete the Baptism application form and bring it in to the rectory or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
