Baptism

 

Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit, and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as children of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission: Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water and the Word.

This is an initiation rite which begins our journey by connecting us to a community of faith. It is a ritual which includes pouring on of water, lighting a candle for life and the presence of sponsors who promise to guide the person on their journey of faith.
