   Through Baptism the faithful enter into communion with Christ's
life, death, and resurrection.  Baptism washes away sins and wel-
comes new members into our Catholic family.
Infants can be baptized soon after birth.  At the time of Baptism,
parents vow to practice their faith and provide a Catholic upbringing
for the child.
Adults who have never been baptized participate in the Rite of
Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) and typically are baptized at the
Easter Vigil.  The Catholic Church recognizes the Baptism from other
Christian denominations who baptize in the name of the Father, the
Son, and the Holy Spirit.  Thus, a person can only be baptized once.
For more information about infant baptism and RCIA contact the
Parish Office 256-6498.
    
Go and make disciples of all nations
baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son
and of the Holy Spirit.
 Matthew 28:19
