Baptism

In Baptism we become a new creation in Christ by being buried with him in likeness of his death and raised in the likeness of his resurrection. Our fallen nature is cleansed and we given new identities as sons and daughters of God and heirs to eternal life in his kingdom.

Overview

Baptism is the first sacrament of the Catholic Church and marks the beginning of a person's journey of faith. Through the pouring of water and the words of the priest, the person being baptized is cleansed of original sin and becomes a member of the Catholic Church. This sacrament is a powerful reminder that God's love and grace are freely given, and it is a joyous occasion for both the person being baptized and the community of believers.

Baptism is an important moment in the life of a Catholic, as it signifies the beginning of a life-long journey of faith and service to others. The sacrament of Baptism is celebrated in the presence of the community of believers, and the family and godparents of the person being baptized take on the responsibility of nurturing the faith of the baptized person.

Baptism is not just a one-time event, but a continuous process of growing in faith and living out the Gospel in our daily lives. Through the sacrament of Baptism, we are called to live as members of the Church and to be a light to the world, sharing the love and compassion of Christ with those around us.

Whether you are a lifelong Catholic or someone exploring the Catholic Church, the sacrament of Baptism is a powerful reminder of the importance of faith, community, and service in our lives. It is an invitation to join in the life of the Church and to grow in our relationship with God and others.
