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. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as [children] of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church, and made sharers in her mission. Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water in the word.
(Catechism of the Catholic Church, §1213)
Congratulations on the birth of your child!
We celebrate the Sacrament of Baptism on the fourth Sunday of each month immediately following the 11am Mass at Holy Cross Church. We encourage families to join us at the 11am Mass when they are celebrating the Sacrament of Baptism.
Please contact the rectory to make the necessary arrangements for Pre-Jordan preparation ahead of time. You can fill in this Baptism Information Form ahead of time if you wish; you can email the completed form to Mr. Darin Williams, our Director of Religious Education, to finalize the arrangements.
