So you want to get your child baptized?
Wonderful! We are glad that you have heard and responded to God's call to become part of His family. It is in baptism that we brought into the family of God, the Church. It is through this sacrament of Baptism that God places his very life inside, which we call grace. Through this new life a new character is stamped into the very core of who we are, our soul, leaving an indelible mark on us, and giving us gifts and talents to make God visible to others through our lives.
There's plenty more we could talk about Baptism, but that's why we have some called Baptism preparation. In these sessions, parents will explore the various realities of baptism, what it does, and what it means for the parents (and godparents)!
