Bringing your newborn to be baptized is one of the most important things you can do as a parent. No matter how young the child is, God sends the gift of the Holy Spirit.
BAPTISM ENCOURAGES FUTURE FAITH
Naturally, a baby is too small to know what a baptism is all about. So, parents bring their child for baptism on the basis of their own faith, with the hope that the child will grow in faith, and love and serve God.
YOUNG PEOPLE AND ADULTS
Adults and youth who wish to publicly confess their faith and enter the Church (and who haven’t been previously baptized) can be baptized.
BAPTISM PROMOTES FUTURE GROWTH
No matter at what age you’re baptized, baptism celebrates the start of a new life with Christ. By being baptized, you’ve taken the first step on a life-changing (and life-giving) journey into the heart of the Christian way.
