The Lord himself affirms that Baptism is necessary for salvation. He also commands his disciples to proclaim the Gospel to all nations and to baptize them. Baptism is necessary for salvation for those to whom the Gospel has been proclaimed and who have had the possibility of asking for this sacrament. The Church does not know of any means other than Baptism that assures entry into eternal beatitude; this is why she takes care not to neglect the mission she has received from the Lord to see that all who can be baptized are “reborn of water and the Spirit.” God has bound salvation to the sacrament of Baptism, but he himself is not bound by his sacraments. (CCC 1257)
Parents wishing to baptize their child (under the age of 7) please contact the Parish Office to make arrangements. Baptisms usually take place following the Sunday 11:00 AM Mass. If this is your first child, Baptismal Preparation must be completed prior to the baptismal date.
If your child is over the age of 7 they will need to attend RCIA/RCIC classes and will be baptized during the Easter Vigil.
