Baptism is the first Sacrament of Christian Initiation.

To baptize means to “plunge” or to “immerse” into the water. Baptism is birth into a new life in Christ. It frees us from original sin and incorporates us into his Body, the Church.

Parents who seek to have their children baptized must contact the parish office to inquire information regarding Baptisms. Please refer to the Baptismal Form/Packet for information on the required paperwork for both parents and godparents.
