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. 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.  

Adults and children ages 7 and older who have never been baptized take part in RCIA/RCIC (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults/Children), and will typically be baptized at the Easter Vigil.
