Infant Baptism Sacrament Preparation
This is the first of the Sacraments of Initiation, without which no other sacrament can be validly received. Our old self of sin dies and is buried with Christ in order that we may live a new risen life of grace as a member of His Church. Baptism washes away Original Sin and any past personal sins, it gives the character of an adopted child of God and member of Christ’s Mystical Body, and it plants the seeds of Eternal Life.
**Children must be 7 years or younger to receive this sacrament. Parishioners who have a new child should fill out an Infant Baptism request form one or two months before due date, if possible.
