Baptism is the Sacrament of regeneration through water in the word. Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit and the door which gives acces to all other sacraments. Through Baptism we are feed from sin and reborn as children of God.
Any parishioner wishing to have their child baptized must contact the appropriate instructor to schedule baptismal classes. At least one baptismal sponsor must be a baptized Catholic. Parents and God parents must attend class either at St. Rose de Lima or at a Catholic Parish near you. Documentation of class attendance must be provided to the baptism instructor or the pastor before you may have your child baptized. After all preparation classes have been completed, you must contact the pastor and schedule a date to have your child baptized.
