In the Sacraments, we begin with signs we can see, feel, or hear; 
water, oil, bread and wine, human words and gestures.  
God acts through the ordinary to make our lives extraordinary.  
Blessing and praising God is one way we respond to God’s action in our lives. 

Baptism

The Sacrament that incorporates us into Jesus Christ and His Church.

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 children of God; we become members of Christ, incorporated into the Church, and made sharers in its mission. Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water in the word.

Infant Baptism:
Baptism is celebrated twice a month, either during Sunday Mass or at a 1:00pm ceremony. 
Contact the parish office during the fifth month of pregnancy to make arrangements and register with the Elizabeth Ministry.
