Our parish community extends our congratulations on the occasion of the birth of your child and your desire to have him/her welcomed into the church. Your child will be baptized into the mystery of Christ’s loving embrace, given new life and the promise of life eternal. This moment is not only a moment of grace for you and your family but also for our entire parish. Baptism is also a time for parents to acknowledge their primary role in passing on the faith to their child.
The Baptismal preparation process at our parish includes the following:
Baptism is the first sacraments of initiation; Eucharist and Confirmation are the other two. Baptism leads to the newly baptized person to the table of the Lord. Weekly participation in the Sunday Eucharist is a valuable sign that a person is disposed to celebrating the sacrament of Baptism and being open to the wonder and grace of God.
If you have been away from the weekly Sunday Eucharist, this a wonderful time to return to the table of the Lord. We pray that God will bless you and your family as you continue to grow in faith.
