aptism is the Church’s sacrament of welcome and the gateway to all the other sacraments. The Baptism of a child is a very special occasion in the life of a family.
It is also a very special occasion in the life of the Church. Just as we welcome a child into our families, so too the Church welcomes children into the family of God.
Baptism initiates a person into the Christian Community, making them children of God and members of the local parish. Baptism is a graced moment in which we meet God, and the decision to celebrate the sacrament deserves careful consideration.
