Sacrament of Baptism
The Baptism of your child is a wonderful blessed occasion for your child, your family and your parish family. Baptism is the first sacrament of initiation into our Catholic faith and the basis of the whole Christian life. In the Sacrament of Baptism we are reborn of the water and of the Holy Spirit, and we are invited to share in Jesus Christ’s mission here on Earth.
Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit, and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. (USCCB- 1213) Infant Baptism corresponds to any child up to and including the age of seven. For children older than seven years contact the Faith Formation Office at 863-647-3400. Thanks & God Bless you.
