Baptisms

The jailer of Paul and of Silas said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”  And Paul and Silas said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus and you and your household will be saved.” … Then the jailer and all his family were baptized at once.  He brought them up into his house and provided a meal and with his household rejoiced at having come to faith in God.     Acts 16:30-34

Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit, and the door which gives access to the other sacraments.  Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons and daughters of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church, and are made sharers in her mission.  We receive this sacrament only once in our lifetime, and we are encouraged to receive it as soon as possible, even as babies under the care of our parents.  For the baptism of children younger than the age of reason, instructions are given at the bottom of this page.  For children older than the age of reason, they will receive first communion and baptism in the same celebration; please see the RCIC Brochure or contact the office.  If you are an adult seeking baptism, you will receive baptism, first communion, and confirmation in the same celebration; please see the Confirmation Page or contact the office.
