Baptism is the central rite through which the faithful enter into communion with Christ's life, death, and resurrection. 

Infants can be baptized soon after their birth. Parents should be active supporting members of the parish for four months prior to baptisms. Preparation for the sacrament involves special instructions for he parents. Please call the parish office preferably before the child is born for information on Baptismal times. No Baptisms during Lent. 

Adults who have never been baptized take part in RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults), and will typically be baptized at the Easter Vigil.
