What is Baptism?

Baptism is the starting point in our journey through life with Jesus and His Church. Learning from the example Christ set by being baptized Himself (Matthew 3:13-17), and the commission He gave the apostle to baptize all nations (Matthew 28:18-19).

Baptism is done through water and word. We baptize all those seeking the sacrament in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. This constitutes a valid baptism.

We believe in baptism for all who seek a life with Jesus, usually done as infants or small children. However, anyone of any age can be baptized if they never have been or possibly were not properly baptized.

Please call the Parish office at 252-9576 and we would be happy to help your family in preparation for Baptism.
