Baptism

Baptismgives us a share in the life of Christ and makes us members of His body, the Church. As we go down into the waters of baptism, we die with Christ, our old self is left behind, our sin is washed away. As we come up out of the waters we rise with Christ, we are reborn to a new and everlasting life, we become children of God and brother and sister to one another.

 

Our baptismal fontallows us to immerse infants in the upper font and to pour water over older children and adults as they kneel in the pool. The very shape of our font speaks of the "meanings" of baptism. The pool is shaped like a tomb; the upper font is shaped like a womb.

 

Infant Baptism is celebrated at the Eucharist throughout the year.

Parents anticipating the birth and baptism of their child should contact the parish office for preparation and scheduling.  Parents must attend one (1) preparation session, unless you have attended a session within the past 3 years.

Parents are encouraged to participate in the sessions before the birth of their child.  Godparents are invited to attend too.
