Holy Spirit Parish celebrates the birth and baptism of a child with great joy and gratitude for the gift of life!
Baptism incorporates us into Christ and forms us into God’s people. This first sacrament takes away the stain of Original Sin, rescues us from the power of darkness, and brings us to the dignity of adopted children. We become a new creation through water and the Holy Spirit. St. Paul says, in baptism we especially, and most importantly, participate with Christ in His death so that we might participate in His resurrection1.
The preparation for baptism and Christian instruction are both a vital concern of God’s people, and the Church, which hands on and nourishes the faith received from the Apostles. Through the ministry of the Church, adults are called to the Gospel by the Holy Spirit and infants are baptized in the faith of the Church and brought up in the practice of that faith.
