The Sacrament of Baptism

Baptism incorporates us into the Body of Christ. It is the sacrament that makes us children of God. Sin is forgiven and grace is given. An appointment for Baptismal Preparation is necessary. Preparation is done with one of the parish priests. Please call the parish office at 371-2320 to contact one of the parish priests for Baptismal Preparation.

From the Code of Canon Law: Sponsors for the Sacraments of Baptism must be Catholics who have been Confirmed and have already received the Sacrament of the Most Holy Eucharist and who lead a life in harmony with the Catholic Faith and the responsibilities required of a sponsor/Godparent. (Canons 874 and 893) Canon Law 873: One sponsor, male or female is sufficient; but there may be two, one of each sex. Canon Law 874/2: A baptized person who belongs to a non-catholic ecclesial community may be admitted only in company with a catholic sponsor, and then simply as a witness to the baptism.
