The Sacrament of Baptism initiates one into the believing Christian community. This Sacrament brings new life by water and the Holy Spirit and frees us from sin. Baptismal preparation sessions are held prior to each Baptism. These informative sessions explore the meaning of the Sacrament and explain the Rite of Baptism which is beneficial for parents and godparents as they share their faith with their children.
