Baptism is a Sacrament which cleanses us from Original Sin, makes us Christians, children of God, members of the Church and heirs of Heaven.
Baptism also forgives actual sins, plus all punishment due to them, when it is received in the proper disposition by those who have been guilty of actual sin.
The ordinary minister of Baptism is a priest, but anyone may baptize in case of necessity, when a priest cannot come.
Baptism is given by pouring water on the head of the person to be baptized, saying at the same time these words: "I baptize thee in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and the Holy Spirit."
In Baptism we promise to renounce the devil and all his works and all his empty promises.
Baptism is necessary for salvation, because Christ has said, "Unless a man be born again of water and the Holy Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God." (John 3:5). Baptism is celebrated only once.
Please call the parish office to make an appointment to speak with the parish priest for baptism.
