Infant Baptism

PURPOSE STATEMENT
BAPTISMAL FORMS
Baptism Form
Baptismal Guidelines
Godparent Certificate
As parents and Godparents preparing for Baptism, we grow in a conscious awareness of the amazing love of God and the meaning of our Baptismal Promises. Passing on the faith to our children calls us to a renewed understanding of this sacrament. We begin to recognize that families are the "church of the home" and dwell on "holy ground". Parents and Godparents attend a preparation session prior to the baptism of their child (up to the age of 6). Together we come to understand the meaning of Baptism; its effect on our lives and the lives of our children and our faith community. We are called to Discipleship with Jesus through Baptism.
